5-7 bu/ac Advantage Over Another Inoculant

“I’ve used SoyRhizo for two years now on 1500 acres and got about a 5-7 bu/ac advantage over another inoculant. I’m very happy with XiteBio SoyRhizo and will be using it again next year.”

– Joe Gorski, Harrow, ON

Effect of Inoculant on Soybean Yield

Extremely Good Nodulation, Better Than Our Current Brand

“The SoyRhizo beans are an extremely nice looking crop. It’s quite a difference between the SoyRhizo treated beans and those from other brands. The SoyRhizo inoculant gave us extremely good nodulation, better than our current brand. Our average yield is 28 bu/ac. I expect SoyRhizo will give us at least 40 bu/ac of soybean.”

– Wayne Drangsholt, Mohall, ND
