Market+ Insight delivers a living map of the world’s food system.  Capable of characterizing localized soil conditions, drawing field boundaries to meter-level accuracy, and discerning subtle differences in crop health across a region, Atlas’s proprietary algorithms generate a range of high-resolution, real-time, and actionable outputs. Atlas information enables growers to make more informed planting, harvest, and marketing decisions. It also grants buyers and consumers a greater degree of control and choice over their supply chain.

    Zooming in on our reports

    Every month, the directors and data scientists behind Indigo's ag intelligence offer a closer look at our reports. See how we generate our insights, what they mean for the market, and how growers are reacting across the world.

    A realtime plant health index optimized for agriculture

    For decades, vegetation indices have seen many use cases across life sciences, but none has been tailored to the unique needs of agriculture. To track the dynamic variables affecting crop health, Indigo has created the Crop Health Index (CHI). We follow multiple crops across several geographies to better understand our global food system — and help you make better decisions in realtime.

    How we generate insights

    A living map of the world's food supply

    The Indigo Dispatch app displays grain loads that growers and shippers have communicated to Indigo.

    As part of its living map of the world's food system, Indigo  forecasts crop yield and production around the globe with a satellite imaging and machine learning platform called Atlas. Atlas’ yield prediction capabilities have outperformed the USDA's in recent years. With the application of machine learning and artificial intelligence to satellite imagery, Indigo Atlas generates global crop health and performance daily. Indigo stakeholders, including growers and partners, leverage this data for myriad objectives throughout the season.

    If you take a look at the image shown here of the Mississippi River, you can see what is called an Enhanced Vegetation Index (EVI) where the image is comprised of multiple data layers stacked over time. The input images were acquired throughout the 2018 growing season by the European Space Agency 's twin Sentinel -2 satellites, which image the earth every four days. These multi-temporal image composites are the raw ingredients used in Indigo 's field boundary identification and crop type mapping efforts.
