Progress isn't driven by accepting industries as they are. It's driven by asking questions. Which is why we're working with farmers, grain buyers, and stakeholders across the ag ecosystem to innovate everything from soil to sale.
We believe the way to make agriculture more beneficial for people and planet isn't by questioning one piece of it but by challenging the entire system.
So what questions have we asked along the way?
With 100+ patents for microbiome technologies and the world's largest endophyte library, we continue evolving solutions to help growers increase productivity as part of our Biologicals offer, now available at hundreds of ag retailers in the U.S.
With the volume of grain being bought and sold each year, what if there were an easier, more efficient way of doing business for farmers and grain buyers? What if technology and data insights could help optimize these transactions?
Since 2018, Indigo Marketplace has connected farmers and grain buyers for efficiency and with consumers for traceability and quality, by unlocking technology and data insights. Today we’ve enabled 100M+ bushels of grain transactions working with growers and grain buyer facilities across the U.S., including with value added services such as sourcing sustainable grain and delivering grain through Indigo Transport.
Farmers can sequester carbon back into their soils and abate greenhouse gas emissions through regenerative farming practices such as planting cover crops or reducing tillage – and should be paid to do so.
In 2019, we helped draw the world’s attention to this opportunity and introduced Carbon by Indigo: a program that provides verified, nature-based credits to companies while supporting farmers in their transition towards more beneficial agriculture.
Farmers have enrolled 2.8 million acres into the program with a growing cohort of leading companies supporting their efforts, representing one of the most immediate, affordable, and scaled approaches there is to addressing climate change.
“Indigo is uniquely positioned to partner with stakeholders across the agricultural ecosystem to evolve the industry to be more efficient and beneficial for the planet. Indigo is on the leading edge, fostering science and technology that improves farm profitability and aligns with growing consumer desire for low-carbon, healthier food and fiber.”
