Does anyone have experience with the Indigo seed treatment on corn, beans, or wheat?

Indigo Ag is offering their seed microbe treatment plus agronomy for $9 an acre. They say 1-3 bu increase on beans and 0-12 bu increase on corn. Does anyone have some experience with Indigo good or bad? Has anyone done some side by side testing to see if they're legit or just smoke and mirrors?

Met with top leadership in Memphis at their conference 18 months ago. These people are trying to steal the only remaining bits of privacy we have left on our farm. They will use the carbon market (product of the far left) to regulate our behavior on our own land. The seed treatment is a scam, the indigo transportation leg is a complete joke and their marketing team's story changes from month to mo...

I currently have a field of Brawl CL treated with their product to try. No results until July, but it looks fine right now. I planted it into millet stubble on part of the field and into pea stubble on the other part of the field.

I tried some of their treated corn 2018. 1)This was under their old program where you had to buy corn seed from Midland Genetics. 2) The field I planted was split between two treated hybrids, both yield in the bottom 25% of our farm and seed cost was $297/bag vs $135-150/bag for our normal seed. 3) Higher ups didn't really care to offer any help or suggestions and asked me to stop posting pictures...

I've tried it on wheat and cotton, there was absolutely no difference. Planted a wheat field half with Indigo treatment and the other half with no treatment. Couldn't find the line at harvest time on the yield monitor.

We signed up for indigo carbon but decided not to use any seed treatment. I talked to someone who used it last year who saw no yield response. Hopefully there are enough others willing to try it to have more 3rd party yield data available to make a decision for 2021.
