Microbial inoculants and ag-biologicals are our specialty and our passion. For over a decade our customers have trusted us to help them increase on-farm ROI.
Our inoculants use proprietary formulations and patented technologies. They are fermented in controlled batches and then undergo rigorous Quality Assurance / Quality Control (QA/QC).
XiteBio Technologies Inc. uses microbial platforms developed in house at our Innovation Research and Development (IRD) facility. These platforms power our inoculant and ag-biological products.
Adavnced Growth Promoting Technology® (AGPT®) powers our nitrogen fixing inoculants.
Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria (PGPR) powers our P-solubilizing ag-biologicals.
Accept no substitutes. This technology is proprietary, private and patented*. While competitors claim to have similar products none can claim to have our technology.
Find out why our customers have trusted XiteBio Technology for the past 13 years to give them Healthier Plants and Better Yields.

AGPT® is a revolution in liquid inoculant technology. It is a proprietary liquid formulation combined with the beneficial bacteria Rhizobium.
What makes AGPT® powered inoculants different from conventional inoculants is the liquid solution in which the bacteria are suspended. Not only does our formulation nourish our premium rhizobia, it also nourishes the native soil microflora.
Our biotechnological research, and rigorous QA/QC process, guarantees the optimal number of live bacteria are delivered through our inoculants. Too many or too few rhizobia can be detrimental to the natural balance of the soil. AGPT® ensures that once the product is applied, either on-seed or
in-furrow, the existing soil ecosystem thrives and works in synergy with the newly introduced rhizobia.
Generic inoculants rarely invigorate native soil microflora. They simply introduce new rhizobia without taking into account the needs of the soil. This can cause competition for resources in the soil.
AGPT® products are sustainable and compatible with regenerative farming practices. Whether you use them in organic applications (in Canada)
PGPR (Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria) are the class of beneficial soil bacteria in the root zone that colonize the roots and stimulate plant growth. The XiteBio® Yield+ product line uses patented PGPR Bacillus firmus. XiteBio® Yield+ promotes plant growth and development resulting in more yield via the following modes of action:
Adequate P (phosphorus) is critical to plant development, particularly early in the growing season. Not all P is accessible to plants as it can bind to minerals in the soil such as calcium, iron, aluminum and magnesium. XiteBio® Yield+ releases enzymes into the soil that unlocks P from these ions and makes it more available for plants.
Just as they are for animals, hormones are important for healthy plant growth. XiteBio® Yield+ produces vital plant hormones such as IAA (indole-3-acteic acid) that encourage the root system to grow early, vigorously and seek out nutrients.
Iron (Fe) is a critical component of many plant functions such as chlorophyll production. Not all Fe in the soil is accessible to plants since it is in the unavailable form. XiteBio® Yield+ produces siderophores, which are molecules that chelate (bind to) Fe and make them more available to plants.
XiteBio® Yield+ is a liquid inoculant for oilseeds, cereals and legumes. The active ingredient is our patented strain of Bacillus firmus.
XiteBio® Yield+ works on three distinct modes of action:
The unique patented strain of Bacillus firmus vigorously colonizes plant roots and solubilizes soil-bound P for increased plant uptake. This combined with the growth phytohormone leads to earlier root development and plant growth. Siderophore production helps to chelate iron in high PH soils.
XiteBio® Yield+ can be applied in two ways. In-furrow by tank mixing with most starter fertilizers, or with early-post herbicides through the sprayer at the 0-6 leaf stage.
XiteBio® Yield+ is based on our PGPR (Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobia) platform. PGPR products introduce beneficial bacteria into the soil that release enzymes to stimulate plant growth.
