In the ag industry, the term “biologicals” is often used as a blanket term. However, it’s supposed to be used to refer to naturally occurring inputs. Jason Little, vice president of ecosystem strategy with Indigo Agriculture, said they specialize in biologicals around the root system.

Little said that aiming for the root system is one of the most efficient ways to optimize nutrient uptake.

Little said that biological solutions, particularly the ones Indigo offers, can help to expand the toolbox that farmers have against SCN.
