NEC member Indigo Ag, a developer of technology to improve grower profitability, environmental sustainability, and consumer health, recently launched Indigo Certified Crops™, a new initiative that will be rolled out for the 2019 crop season. Indigo Certified Crops is an offer for U.S. growers that will increase grower profitability with higher yields, while simultaneously ensuring that growers maintain decision-making authority about the marketing of their own grain.
Indigo Certified Crops will be available for a wide range of grains from rice, to soybeans, to corn production, and is inclusive of GM, non-GM, and organic harvests. As part of this initiative, other perks for growers include grain quality testing and data-driven agronomic support. Growers will also have the ability to opt into Indigo Marketplace and will have access to the company’s grain storage and transportation programs.
David Perry, Indigo Ag’s President and CEO said, “Our commitment to farmer profitability with increased control is at the core of our latest offering. Indigo Certified Crops was designed in response to grower demands for selecting inputs and marketing opportunities that best fit their individual needs. Along with those aspects of the offer, Indigo is able to continue delivering our microbial products and agronomic insights, which have been repeatedly shown to increase productivity for farmers across the country.”
The NEC congratulates Indigo on this new initiative for the coming crop season and appreciates their commitment to supporting our farmers.
