By using sophisticated genomic sequencing and computational bioinformatics, Indigo has assembled what we believe is the worlds largest database of genomic information from these microbes. Inspired by insights from the human microbiome, Indigo started with the hypothesis that microbes living inside the plant (endosymbionts) are vital to the planet, but reduced by modern agriculture. By applying algorithms and machine learning to its database, Indigo understands which microbes are most beneficial to the plants health and which of them complement a plants natural processes. Ultimately, they are used to improve health and development across each phase of life, while boosting crop yields. This year, Indigo harvested 50,000 acres of the cotton planted with its first product, designed to help the crop grow in low-water conditions
