Our Commitment To Growers

The Next Big Idea in Farming Started Under a Microscope
Natural resource scarcity, climate variability, and ever increasing scrutiny from consumers are some of the challenges that modern agriculture is facing today. At Indigo™, we believe that a new generation of microbial products has the potential to address these challenges - to transform agriculture for the better.
It All Begins With Microbes

Organisms so tiny that millions of them fit on the head of a pin. In plants, they occur naturally, helping to fight diseases, increase nutrient intake, and improve water efficiency.

Inspired by insights from the human microbiome, Indigo started with the hypothesis that many of the microbes living inside a plant are vital to its health. With sophisticated sequencing techniques, Indigo has assembled a world-class database of genomic information from these microbes.

Potentially beneficial microbes are identified and tested, first in the lab, then in the greenhouse, and, finally, over several growing seasons in the field. Once this process is completed, Indigo decides on the most promising microbial formulations and works with manufacturing partners to produce these at scale.

Indigo adds beneficial microbes to crops in the form of a seed coating.
This process results in innovative, naturally derived products that complement a plant's natural processes to improve crop health while increasing yield.

Just like the collaborative relationship between plants and endophytes, we believe a true business partner is one that grows with you. We are committed to sharing risk with you on your acres and are seeking to learn with you as we introduce the first exciting products from our R&D pipeline.

Indigo's team and advisors include respected leaders in agriculture, plant science, the plant and human microbiome, and business. Several of us are growers too, and are passionate about working with you. Together, we can impact agricultural productivity and address the challenges facing our growing world.

We are committed to interacting with you with transparency, honesty, and integrity.

Planting the Seeds for Better Water Utilization
Indigo Cotton

Our first product, Indigo Cotton™, demonstrated an average yield improvement of 11% across growers' fields in the water-limited target region of West Texas in 2016. In addition, Indigo Cotton™ demonstrated a win rate of 75% across seed varieties and geographies, resulting in enhanced profit potential for U.S. cotton growers without the need for additional water use through irrigation.

Indigo Wheat

We are pioneering our unique plant-based microbial seed treatment across America's staple cereal grain with Indigo Wheat™, launched in 2016. Indigo Wheat™ has demonstrated higher nutrient utilization and water uptake, as well as an increase in grain-producing tillers. Currently, Indigo Wheat™ is being planted by growers in multiple wheat- producing areas of the U.S.

Indigo Soybeans

A protein-rich legume, soybeans are one of Indigo’s primary 2017 crop launches. Not only has this product shown excellent potential to bring better harvests in conventional growing environments, but it has also demonstrated improved tolerance to water scarcity and enhanced water use efficiency.

Indigo Rice

Indigo Rice™ can enhance seedling vigor above and below ground — a crucial first step in cultivating a successful rice crop. Early vigor is critically important to producing higher yields and defending against early incidence of disease and weed pressure in this intensely managed, irrigation-dependent crop.

Indigo Corn

Like our other products, Indigo Corn™, launched in 2017, has the potential to boost yields and grower profitability by mitigating the negative yield impact of water stress during flowering.
