Indigo Wheat Seed Treatment is free (no upfront costs) if there is not yield increase. Cost only applies if there is a yield increase. So we back our product. How do you measure? Just use Indigo Wheat Seed Treatment on 70% of your crop and compare.
The Indigo Offer is a new way for farmers to manage their working capital whilst benefiting from proprietary microbial technology to boost crop performance under harsh conditions.
We pre-pay for a portion of the crop that is equivalent to the cost of production. Indigo then provides Indigo Wheat™, comprehensive IT/agtech tools, and further support to help the farmer capture full market value of the crop.
Following four years of assessment through controlled trials and commercial field environments throughout the world, our inaugural pilot season of Indigo Wheat™ in Australia was launched in Northwest Victoria in 2017. Results showed an encouraging +14% yield increase vs non-treated wheat across the paddocks. This follows an average yield increase of +15.7% in US commercial fields under high stress conditions earlier in the year. Further info here.
Indigo Wheat™ leverages naturally-occurring, in-plant microbes (endophytes) that are selected to maximise cereal yields in the Australian wheat belt by improving plant tolerance to water stress – in short, Indigo technology inoculates the crop from environmental stresses.
The pricing of the technology is determined by the productivity gain realised by the farmer: if it is determined that the technology has been unable to deliver a satisfactory yield increase, the product fee is reduced or ultimately waived.
Indigo focuses on endophytic microbes that positively impact plant fitness
