Product Overview

Balanced nutrition

TagTeam is a dual-action inocu​lant that provides the balanced nutrition of phosphate and nitrogen by combining the active ingredient from JumpStart® with a nitrogen-fixing bacteria. This unique combination results in improved nodule formation, increased nitrogen fixation, improved phosphate availability and enhanced nutrient availability that leads to improved yield potential.

Phosphate is crucial to nitrogen fixation

Research shows that phosphate nutrition has a significant, positive impact on nitrogen fixation.1 Good phosphate nutrition results in more nodules being formed and more active nitrogen fixation.

  • Phosphate helps move the energy from photosynthesis to the roots, where it is needed to fuel nitrogen fixation
  • More extensive root growth provides gre​ater opportunity for the development of nitrogen-fixing nodules
  • Faster development of active nodules results in greater nitrogen fixation
  • Phosphate nutrition increases the number and size of nodules,and the amount of nitrogen fixed by the plant

How the technology works

  1. Freeing Phosphate - Penicillium bilaiae releases bound mineral forms of soil and fertilizer phosphate, making it more available for the plant to use.
  2. Beneficial Rhizobia - Specially selected rhizobia form a beneficial relationship with the plant, creating nodules which help fix atmospheric nitrogen.
