It didn’t rain for most of the fall, we also had a late freeze. Well, this wheat crop has been exceptional. I can see trends — I live and die by numbers — and this was a yield bump.

Elisabeth Leistikow

Kansas

I would say try Indigo. I was skeptical, but decided to try it. In a bad growing season, Indigo Wheat stood out and looked good — more prolific, greener, vigorous. I planted non-Indigo wheat just a half a mile away and it didn’t do anything.
