A New Frontier of Superior Growth

TagTeam® BioniQ® combines five biological actives to energize your pulse crop, helping maximize the effectiveness of inputs and improve yield potential. That’s multiple ways to help you succeed, all in one inoculant.

A specially selected Rhizobium strain and the proven performance of LCO (lipochitooligosaccharide) technology are utilized to provide improved nodule formation and increased nitrogen fixation. TagTeam BioniQ has 3 biological actives to promote phosphate availability. Two strains of Penicillium bilaiae fungi, allow the biological to be active in both warm and cool soil conditions. Thus helping to release bound mineral forms in soil and fertilizer phosphate all season long.Bacillus amyloliquefaciens and Trichoderma virens are able to solubilize organic nutrients in the soil, to improve the availability of phosphate and other nutrients.

TagTeam BioniQ's 5 Biological Actives:

  • Rhizobium leguminosarum
  • LCO (lipochitooligosaccharide) technology
  • Penicillium bilaiae
  • Bacillus amyloliquefaciens
  • Trichoderma virens

Earlier Nodulation Development

LCO is a molecule involved in the rhizobia–legume nodulation system. LCO is an important component in nodulation as a key driver in the communication between plants and rhizobia.

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. The benefit of earlier nodulation initiation is nitrogen availability to the pea and lentil plant, which supports plant growth such as root and shoot development. The result of this early season activity is improved pulse plant performance.

Phosphate Is Crucial To Nitrogen Fixation

Research shows that phosphate nutrition has a significant, positive impact on nitrogen fixation1. 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 greater 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 resulting amount of nitrogen fixed by the plant

Most phosphate fertilizer is also banded away from the seed in pea and lentil crops, resulting in limited early-season availability to the crop. Penicillium bilaiae helps overcome this limitation by providing early-season access to soil and starter fertilizer phosphate.
