Indigo Ag and ISAOSA will bring Indigo’s microbial technology, which has been shown to increase corn crop yields, to Mexican corn growers for the first time. ISAOSA will be the exclusive distributor for Indigo 30 in Mexico and will add the product to its fertilizer portfolio. The companies have conducted trials over the past two years that have demonstrated significant yield improvements through the combination of Indigo 30 with existing ISAOSA products. Commercial launch is planned for the first half of 2024 following the completion of the registration process.
Indigo Ag and ISAOSA, a fertilizer distributor in Mexico, have announced plans to bring Indigo’s microbial technology to Mexican corn growers for the first time. Indigo 30, which is part of Indigo’s biotrinsic portfolio of microbial products, has been proven to increase crop yields of corn. The novel formulation will enable Indigo 30 to be directly mixed with fertilizer, which significantly expands the window of application of the product for farmers. Commercial launch is planned for the first half of 2024 following the completion of the registration process.
Indigo has a collection of more than 36,000 microbial strains and has established itself as a global leader in harnessing the potential of the plant microbiome to improve yields and reduce the use of other inputs for growers around the world. This contributes to increased grower profitability and a better environment. Indigo and ISAOSA have entered into a letter of intent to reflect the proposed partnership, with plans to enter into a formal agreement in 2023. Under the proposed agreement, ISAOSA will be the exclusive distributor for Indigo 30 in Mexico and will add the product to its fertilizer portfolio to further enhance performance for growers.
The two companies have conducted various trials over the past two years which have demonstrated significant yield improvements through the combination of Indigo 30 with existing ISAOSA products. Georg Goeres, Global Commercial Biologicals Licensing Lead for Indigo Ag, said that the results of these trials have demonstrated significant yield improvements for corn growers and that this novel formulation, which is difficult to achieve, enables Indigo 30 to be directly mixed with fertilizer for the first time. He added that this significantly broadens the window of application for farmers and creates new market opportunities for Indigo to work with fertilizer producers.
Stefan Strietzel, Managing Director of ISAOSA, said that the company is very pleased to develop new technologies in partnership with Indigo Ag to enhance its portfolio with innovative products that help farmers to increase yields and are in line with its drive for sustainability in Mexican agriculture. He added that ISAOSA is excited to launch Indigo 30 in 2024 and to explore other opportunities to extend the partnership with Indigo.
