Grain Quality Testing

In order to maximize your premium, you need to know the quality of your crop

Indigo tests grain for a host of quality measures – protein content, test weight, etc. – that prepare growers to enter Marketplace seeking premiums for their product. 

To provide the information you need to find the best buyer, Grain Quality Testing is a benefit that is provided as part of the Indigo MarketplaceTM and Indigo ProductionTM, and Indigo Certified Crops. Click below to learn more:

Here's how it works

Step 1: PERSONALIZED KIT

Indigo sends you a personalized kit before harvest that corresponds to the grain growing in your field.

Step 2: SAMPLE SHIPMENT & RESULTS

You sample and ship your grain sample via the provided box and shipping label to the quality testing lab. Receive the results from your test through the Indigo Grower app.

Step 3a: INDIGO PRODUCTION

Within Indigo Production, Indigo will use your results to find the best buyer for your grain and pass the benefit on to you through a per bushel premium.

Step 3b: INDIGO MARKETPLACE

Within Indigo Marketplace, you can use your results as a factor in deciding on the best bid available to sell your grain.

OR Step 3c: INDIGO CERTIFIED CROPS

Within Indigo Certified Crops, you can use your results as a factor in deciding on the best bid available to sell your grain.

I had Indigo-treated cotton in a side-by-side comparison with untreated cotton. Throughout the year, the Indigo plants were visibly healthier and taller. The Indigo-treated cotton had at least a third more root mass than the untreated cotton. When scouting the field, I noticed 1-1.25 more bolls per foot on the Indigo-treated cotton. I was pleased with the results last year and I have already contracted cotton acres this year.

I believe that Indigo Marketplace represents the future of grain trading. The current system is inefficient and doesn’t leverage technologies that are widely used across other industries. The tools for building a truly digital system are available — change is long overdue. Indigo has the resources to lead this change and is creating a future where growers can earn more and buyers can bring high quality, IP grain to end-users.

With little rain during our community’s growing season, corn yields have been low this year, around 80 bushels per acre. Farmers growing Indigo Corn were protected, with yields well over 100 bushels per acre.
