What Indigo Ag's CNBC title means for Australian Agriculture

Recently securing the top spot on the 2019 CNBC Disrupter 50 List, Indigo Ag is fast cementing its reputation as one of the world’s leading innovators.

A company renowned for making non-GMO beneficial seed treatments, Indigo Ag helps producers maximize yields on crops such as wheat, barley and cotton through mitigating environmental stress.

And locally, since its launch in Australia in 2018, Indigo Agriculture Australia’s Bill Dwyer said the company was perfectly positioned as a genuine, viable safeguard against our harsh Australian seasons.

It's latest accolade - listed as the number one company on CNBC’s seventh annual disruptor list, confirms Indigo Ag is now at the forefront of an agricultural revolution.

Mr Dwyer believed the acknowledgement represented a further shift in agriculture towards a more sustainable and healthier future.

"This list is dedicated to unveiling forward-thinking start-ups on the cutting edge of huge consumer, technology and business shifts that have the potential to change the whole landscape of an industry."

“Indigo Ag is proving that we can practice agriculture, at scale, in a way that is beneficial for growers, consumers, and the environment,” Bill said.

“By creating seed treatments that optimise the health of a plant in order to increase its yield, the aim of Indigo Ag is to use natural microbiology and tech to improve sustainability, profits for growers and consumer health.”

In a unique business-model, if there is no increase in yield from the Indigo crop, there is no fee to pay.

“We are happy to share the risk our farmers assume every year, and ultimately to put our money where our mouth is with this new technology,” Bill said.

"There is no downside for the producer, so you can think of it as insurance against the Australian climate."

A four-year-old start up, which originated in Boston USA, Mr Dwyer said the whole team was extremely proud of the Indigo Ag’s latest recognition on the CNBC Disruptor list.

“This news is significant for our young organization but, more importantly, it is an achievement for the health and progress of our population and planet.

“In 2013, the list’s inaugural year, agriculture wasn’t even included as an industry to watch. Now, the industry is at the forefront of technological breakthroughs and innovation, while the collective recognition for its potential accelerates.”

“The quest to increase food production remains critical as the global population grows from around 7.5 billion today to a projected 9.8 billion by 2050.”

“Here in Australia our production quality and capability is second to none, and with the help of Indigo Ag, our local growers have huge potential to be part of a world-wide solution.”
