I feel like I remember their estimate from last year or the year before being about as far off as any that I had seen, so as appealing as it is being they are very low I would take it with a grain of salt

I don't know much about them but venture to say their yield estimates are closer than the USDA, Indigo 154 vs USDA 169. I think they are a legit company but don't know if they'll make you any money.

Where from in Iowa?

Don't blame the baker when the butcher bakes the bread.

I tried some of Indigo's seed treatment this year, with the promise of big dollar carbon credits. What a mistake! I did three, one mile long test strips on wheat. Same variety, same day, three total miles of alternating passes to keep land equal. Very sandy soil and really dry this year. My check strips averaged 71, while the indigo ran 68, and only .2 higher protein. What a Disappointment! All the hype and no results. Ive asked them what the reason and for a refund. Of course, no response
