The Indigo Promise

We will always strive to do the right thing

We believe that the plant microbiome can fundamentally change agriculture for the better, and we are motivated to maximize that potential. We are intensely focused on meeting the needs of four groups of stakeholders: growers, consumers, the environment, and shareholders.

Indigo started with the hypothesis that microbes living inside of plants are vital to their health

Introducing Indigo

Our challenge is two fold: we must increase our planet’s capacity to produce food, and we must do so in a sustainable and responsible manner that complements while gradually replacing the technologies that are responsible for much of our recent gains.

Why Indigo?

Indigofera, the crop genus from which indigo is derived, has a rich agricultural history - one that embodies our ambitious goals and values as we strive to help improve farming and our foods. This history resonated with us, and elements of our own research also pointed us to the name.

With Indigo, we’re looking at safe products that we can get maximum value out of. The Indigo model lets us try new products and compare them with peers around the state of Kansas. It’s very exciting, because we’re all trying to get back to what’s natural — what’s safe for our farms and our families.

Thayne Larson

Kansas

Indigo’s approach has been different and refreshing. They chose to become a vested partner, placing their seeds, their sensors, and their scientists in my fields. They are replicating this research across the country and here is where we hope the near infinite bits of data from the field create greater value. Here is where the shared data can be fully vetted and here is where today’s technology becomes an asset and a tool for the future.

Greg Baltz

Arkansas

You can’t see how good Indigo is until you get on board. The price premium is excellent and they check on you during the season — they want to be a partner. We’re going to increase the number of acres we’re growing with them next year.
