Indigo is a company dedicated to harnessing nature to help farmers sustainably feed the planet. With a vision of creating a world where farming is an economically desirable and accessible profession, Indigo works alongside growers to apply natural approaches, grow healthy food for all, and conserve resources for future generations. The company was founded on the hypothesis that microbes living inside a plant (endosymbionts) are vital to its health. With sophisticated sequencing techniques, Indigo has assembled a world-class database of genomic information from these microbes, resulting in products that utilize beneficial plant microbes to improve crop health and productivity. Indigo’s portfolio is focused on cotton, wheat, rice, corn, and soybeans. The company is headquartered in Boston, MA, with commercial and customer service based in Memphis, TN.
