    Indigo Ag Signals Major Expansion of International Biological Business with Galeri Ziraat Partnership in Türkiye

    Agriculture Leader Also Expanding into Multiple New European Markets in 2024

    BOSTON (February 20, 2024) – Indigo Ag, the innovative leader and trusted partner in sustainable agriculture, today announced a major expansion of its regional partnership in Türkiye with Galeri Ziraat, one of the country’s leading distributors of crop input products and dedicated to working with growers to improve the efficiency of sustainability in agriculture. The agreement coincides with a significant expansion into new European markets this season.


    Indigo Ag has successfully worked with Galeri Ziraat over the past two years to rapidly expand its leading range of innovative, microbial seed coatings within Central Anatolia in Türkiye. The new distribution agreement allows Galeri to replicate this strong growth at the national level, increasing grower access to Indigo’s vast portfolio including biotrinsic® i30 FP in Maize/Corn, biotrinsic® i177 FP in Cotton and biotrinsic® i39 FP in Winter Wheat for next autumn season.

    These easy-to-use biological seed coating products have been proven to improve the treated crop’s nutrient use efficiency, and water stress protection during the critical phase of grain filling, leading to stable and increasing yields. According to most recent performance data collated from Turkish commercial growers in 2022 and 2023, the use of biotrinsic® i30FP increased maize yields by an average of 6%. biotrinsic® i177FP delivered an average yield increase of 10% in cotton, and biotrinsic® i39FP delivered an average increase of 11% in winter cereals.

    Commenting on the announcement, Georg Goeres, Global Biological Head at Indigo Ag said, ”This agreement with Galeri Ziraat is a major milestone in the development of our international business in Türkiye and Europe. It reflects the market’s growing trust and confidence in Indigo’s biologicals portfolio, and we are delighted to be expanding our relationship with one of Türkiye’s leading companies. Galeri Ziraat shares our passion for providing growers with the tools they need to naturally grow their yields and manage drought challenges and extreme weather stressors. This agreement paves the way for the further development of our product offerings for Türkiye’s growers along with our marketing and technical support”.

    The agreement in Türkiye marks the beginning of an exciting chapter for Indigo Ag as it plans further expansion to new countries throughout Europe, positively impacting the yields of thousands of growers across the region. In 2024, the company plans to make biotrinsic® seed coatings available to farmers in Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, and Spain. As Indigo Ag extends its reach across Europe, it remains dedicated to cultivating a more sustainable and resilient future for global agriculture.
