TagTeam® biological inoculant

TagTeam® is a dual action inoculant tool combining the phosphate-solubilising microorganism Penicillium bilaii with nitrogen-fixing rhizobia bacteria. Together, they can create more fixed nitrogen, and better access to soil and fertiliser phosphate, providing higher yield potential in pulse inoculants.

TagTeam - What are nodules

TagTeam Technology

The synergy of the rhizobia bacteria and the soil fungus working together delivers increased phosphate efficiency and more fixed nitrogen. TagTeam's MultiAction performance delivers better results than using a single-action rhizobium inoculant plus more phosphate fertiliser, and is more convenient to use.
