indigo

Indigo Ag Inc., a Boston-based company, focuses on the microbes that have evolved in conjunction with plants over millions of years to optimize health and maximize productivity. Utilizing these beneficial microbes, Indigo can work towards its goal of helping farmers to sustainably feed the planet. Inspired by insights from the human microbiome, Indigo began with the hypothesis that microbes living inside a plant (endophytes) 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 complement a plant’s natural processes to improve crop health while increasing yield.
