Consistent field performance with a yield increase of 7% was observed for the JumpStart and TagTeam inoculants, says Novozymes BioAg's Dorn Severtson. JumpStart is a phosphate-solubilizing inoculant that may be used in high pH soils where phosphate tie-up is common. It also can be used in phosphate-deficient soils to ensure that phosphate fertilizer is available to the plant.
TagTeam features dual-mode action. It uses the phosphate-solubilizing properties of JumpStart along with nitrogen-fixing rhizobia. Novozymes BioAg will introduce a low-application-rate technology with TagTeam this growing season. It can be custom applied at ag retail locations or when growers are applying multiple seed treatments at one time.
