Product Overview


Breakthrough performance for soybeans

 

Optimize LV is a NEW concentrated formulation soybean inoculant. Optimize LV has the same biological actives as Optimize ST, with a new lower application rate of 98 ml/100 kg (1.5 fl oz/ 100 lb).

For higher yield potential and better returns for your customers, pre-treat your soybean seed with either Optimize LV or Optimize ST inoculant.

Our Optimize products are retailer-applied dual action inoculants that contain a specially selected Bradyrhizobium japonicum inoculant along with LCO (lipochitooligosaccharide) technology - helping to improve your crop's potential.

Key benefits at a glance

  • Greater opportunity for the development of nitrogen-fixing nodules with LCO
  • Enhanced nutrient capacity, which supports root and shoot growth
  • Lower application rate means more space on seed for other seed treatments
  • Broad seed treatment compatibility with 220-day on seed stability with additional extender* for key seed treatments, otherwise 120 day on seed stability
    *Additional extender sold separately.

 

What is LCO technology?

LCO is a molecule involved in the rhizobia legume nodulation process. When the LCO molecule is present at the time of planting, it allows for the nodulation process to begin, independent of variety, soil and environmental conditions.

With Optimize ST or Optimize LV, the plant does not need to wait for the LCO signal as it is delivered on the seed, potentially reducing the time required for this process to occur naturally and therefore, accelerating nodulation and nitrogen fixation to the young crop.



How the Technology Works

Utilizes a naturally occurring soil fungus to release bound mineral forms of soil and fertilizer phosphate.

Double inoculate your soil for maximum yield potential

Land that has been through less than ideal growing conditions, or has not had soybeans for a few years, requires special attention when it comes to inoculation. Double inoculation can help quickly establish high populations of rhizobia bacteria to help ensure the best possible nodulation and soybean performance. Land with a history of longer soybean rotations, or land with a history of flooding or longer periods of drought, is not conducive to rhizobia survival. It is in these soils that farmers will benefit greatly from the application of two formulations of inoculant.

For best results, you may apply Optimize® ST or Optimize® LV inoculant with Cell-Tech® inoculant or TagTeam® inoculant.
