Indigo Rice

Whether you are a rice farmer or a rice buyer, we have the insider view into transforming your business

Our team works with you to understand your operation and offer solutions to your biggest challenges

You may already know that Indigo is asking big questions. It’s how we got started, and how we’ve worked ever since. Questions about how rice is both produced and sold. How growers and buyers in the market could be more profitable, efficient, and sustainable through the right tools and insights.

For the grower, we are taking a systems approach to the entire rice industry through two core offers: Indigo Marketplace and Indigo Transport. Indigo is furthering its mission of harnessing nature to help farmers sustainably feed the planet.

Indigo works to bring value to the farm through a variety of specific supply opportunities, sustainable production, biotrinsicTM seed treatments, agronomic support, Managed Pricing Programs, and a host of customizable pricing products. We apply an end to end approach to our business to ensure your farm is supported throughout the season.

For the buyer, we help buyers across the U.S. access more growers more directly to buy high-quality, identity-preserved grain. We work with each buyer to determine exact needs, and build an individual plan that leverages Indigo Marketplace to supply rice into your operation. This allows us to offer our partners control and visibility into quality and surety of supply to improve efficiency through secure transactions.

Meet rice grower Greg Baltz

Arkansas farmer Greg Baltz's family has been growing rice for 40 years. Working with Indigo has helped his operation be more profitable.

I've been working with Indigo for three years and it's been exciting. This is the second year I'm working on the sustainable rice marketing program with Anheuser-Busch. Indigo has a goal to make sure that the farmer remains profitable, and that's been key for me.

Meet rice buyer Bill Jones

Sharing a vision with Anheuser-Busch for more sustainably grown rice.

Indigo Ag’s sustainable rice program has been a true testament of the many successes of a farmer – buyer relationship. Defining clear objectives and working with the talented Indigo team to harness farmers’ potential has been such a rewarding experience in the rice industry. Sustainable production practices and data validation are critical to protecting our license to operate and the exciting piece of it all, is that the farmers can implement strategies to reduce their inputs and footprint, all while earning a premium for their efforts. This is a program that should set the industry standard for growing rice in critical or at-risk areas.
