Preside CL®

Soybean Inoculant

Rev up soybeans for faster emergence

Preside CL® soybean inoculant brings more nitrogen into the plant by adding additional nodules and making more efficient use of supplied nitrogen. Early nodulation creates more secondary and feeder roots for potentially more nodulation sites, which increases nutrient uptake and creates greater yield potential.

To accelerate nutrient acquisition and assimilation for healthier plants and greater yield potential, Preside CL pairs a powerful soybean inoculant along with Take Off® technology. This combination improves soybeans’ ability to emerge, establish a stand and effectively utilize the increased levels of nitrogen supplied by Preside CL.

The details
  • Up to four times more rhizobia (Bradyrhizobium japonicum) with multiple strains for more consistency
  • Up to 65% more nodulation and nodule masses, increasing nitrogen-fixing capacity
  • Increases nodulation sites to support higher nitrogen uptake and greater yield potential
  • Faster canopy closure to capture more light and preserve soil moisture

What Our Customers Are Saying

"I really like what I've seen with the Take Off technology in Preside CL soybean inoculant. This past year, I went full-on with Preside CL on all of my soybeans. It's already our go-to inoculant. A lot of guys trying to add to that soybean yield ask, 'What's that next step?' One of the first things we recommend is a good inoculant, and Preside CL seems to fit the bill." - Craig Walter, Falor Farm Center, Delta, Ohio

Application Guidelines

Trial Data

Product Performance

Average yield increases

Preside CL improves stand establishment by up to 20 percent*. Replicated trials in 2014 showed improved yields in 90 percent* of the comparisons. It has more than two times the return of base inoculants and nearly a 4 Bu./A* advantage when compared to no inoculant.
