Seed & Trait Management

FCA partners with Croplan Genetics, Mycogen, LG Seeds, Northrup King and Stine for a complete selection of genetically enhanced seed products designed to fit each of your fields. We offer the latest in smart stack corn genetics with trait-based resistance to corn borer and rootworm as well as the glyphosate and Liberty herbicide families.

Our trained agronomists can now match varieties to your farm’s particular cultural practices and crop protection requirements. FCA also offers fungicide and inoculant seed treatments.

Optimize Soybean Inoculant

Optimize® XC microbial seed treatment is a dual-action, retailer-applied product that helps give soybeans a healthy start. It can help increase nitrogen fixation, ultimately helping maximize yield potential, thanks to a specially selected Bradyrhizobium japonicum inoculant along with the proven LCO (lipo-chitooligosaccharides) molecule.

This new, extra-concentrated formulation from Monsanto BioAg delivers breakthrough performance with the industry’s lowest application rate* for multi-action inoculants: 1.5 fluid ounces per 100 lbs. of seed.


  • More space on your seed for additional seed treatments.
  • Greater opportunity for the development of nitrogen-fixing nodules.
  • Increased nitrogen fixation through nodule formation.
  • Enhanced nutrient capability, which supports root and shoot growth.
  • 120 days on-seed life (with many seed treatments).

Vault Soybean Inoculant

New bio-based, growth-promoter technology with ultra-low application rate! New VAULT® HP is the first in a planned new line of performance-boosting seed-enhancement systems from Becker Underwood.
