GROWERS PAYING attention to getting the best results from their expensive soybean seed were interested in the new soybean inoculant called Optimize. The new Nitragin product ensures nitrogen uptake and boosts plant growth when soybeans are planted early in cool soils. Optimize is a natural bacterial compound that stimulates the nodulation process independent of temperature.
Dave Fox, Nitragin marketing manager, reports that growers using Optimize experienced higher yield responses than expected. They found that Optimize works well with soybean seed treatments by helping the seed get off to a good start.
The active ingredient in Optimize is delivered with Nitragin's Cell-Tech inoculant in a liquid that is applied on soybean seed. Optimize is compatible with many fungicide seed treatments. Once applied, it remains effective for 30 days.
