We are looking for ways to use regeneration – especially with cover crops – to maximize that output. If you can make your business thrive without putting as many chemicals in, then you are going to end up making a more profitable crop.
We've bagged a lot of bushels of grain this year and that gave me the opportunity to use the Indigo Marketplace. I get on there daily, and almost daily, they're sending me new bids.
Technology in agriculture is so advanced, but when I look at the industry as a whole, grain marketing is where it's furthest behind. A lot of people still have to pick up the phone to figure out basis or what corn’s trading for. So when I look into the future and think about seeing local basis, knowing when elevators are accepting delivery, or accessing trucks quickly right from my desktop or cell phone – that gets me really excited about Grain Marketplace.
I'd recommend using Indigo to my neighbors. I had some poor ground that wouldn’t grow soybeans. That’s where we put the Indigo. Well, they looked good all year and the best yield we have ever had on that ground. If you were to ask me, I'd say 'hammer down' and go with Indigo.
