In Carbon by Indigo, you can add multiple fields to your account at once by uploading your shapefiles. This quick guide will walk you through how to do that.

Step 1: After logging in to your Carbon by Indigo account, navigate to the Add Fields page under My Carbon Status, then select the Upload option.

Step 2: A window will pop up with important information regarding acceptable file types and formatting. When you are ready to proceed with uploading, click Browse or drop files here.

Step 3: Select the files you want to upload from your computer and click Upload.

Step 4: From the data included in your file upload, identify which names represent both your field and farm names. Next click Continue at the bottom.

Step 5: If you have more than one entity in your Carbon account, you will have the opportunity to assign each farm to the entity they belong to. Click Continue to move on to field selection.

Step 6: Select the fields you plan to contract in the Carbon program. Note that non-cropland fields are not yet eligible for carbon. Add your fields and wait for them to upload, then click Finished! Go to My Fields to view them.

Step 7: You will be brought back to the main fields page and have the option to add more fields or proceed to check the eligibility for the fields you just uploaded.
