CruiserMaxx® Beans with Vibrance Logo

The Market-leading Seed Treatment: CruiserMaxx® Beans

Quicker Canopies, Stronger Stands, Better Vigor and Higher Yield Potential

CruiserMaxx® Beans insecticide/fungicide, a combination of separately registered products, provides full-spectrum protection for soybeans. In addition to being the market-leading seed treatment providing protection from yield-robbing diseases and insects, CruiserMaxx Beans has shown the ability to increase plant stands, vigor and growth; promote earlier canopy closure; and improve yields. These additional benefits help set the stage for one important consideration: profit potential.

Building Upon the Best-in-Class Seed Treatment: CruiserMaxx Beans Applied with Vibrance®

CruiserMaxx® Beans with Vibrance® is an on-seed application that combines four active ingredients to protect against a broad spectrum of damaging above- and below-ground insects, as well as all major seedborne and soilborne diseases. In addition, CruiserMaxx Beans with Vibrance enhances crop performance through optimized root health and best-in-class protection against Rhizoctonia. CruiserMaxx Beans with Vibrance is backed by extensive testing, use and proven performance. CruiserMaxx Beans has consistently delivered increased yield potential for growers over the last 10 years on more than 80 million acres, across environments. Vibrance has already been adopted on more than 12 million acres since its introduction in 2013.

TagTeam® LCO LogoCue® Logo

TagTeam® LCO plus Cue®

TagTeam® is a popular inoculant for Schlessman Seed customers. Four years in a row nearly half of our customers’ acres have had seed applied innoculants. In conjunction with CruiserMaxx® with Vibrance®, TagTeam® LCO is the way to get the most yield potential out of your seed beans.

How does TagTeam work?

Good phosphate nutrition results in more nodules being formed, and more active nitrogen fixation. More active nitrogen fixation means more nitrogen to the plant, which means higher yields. TagTeam has two main active ingredients: naturally occurring Penicillium bilaii and superior rhizobia strains. The fungus forms a symbiotic relationship with plant roots that makes more phosphate available, while the rhizobia provides better nodule development for more nitrogen fixation.

TagTeam features and benefits:

  • Enhanced root system for improved nutrient and water uptake
  • Earlier and increased nodule development for improved nitrogen fixation
  • Improved vigor, stand, and emergence; produces healthier, faster developing plants
  • Faster canopy closure, reducing weed pressure

Cue® is a soybean plant signal compound Schlessman Seed Company is now including with all soybeans treated with the proven LCO Promoter, TagTeam®.

How Does Cue Work?

Cue triggers beneficial fungi in the root zone before the plant can activate them naturally. Cue enhances the root structure; improving nutrient, water and phosphorus uptake to overcome environmental stress. Cue helps soybean varieties reach their true genetic potential.

Cue features and benefits:

  • Increases root surface area
  • Improves nutrient and water uptake
  • Enhances phosphorus uptake
  • Increases stress tolerance
  • A new patent-pending technology for soybeans that provides consistent yield increases of 1-2 bushels in all yield ranges
