Welcome to Carbon by Indigo! This is a step-by-step guide to help you navigate the Carbon by Indigo software for account creation, adding fields, and signing your contract. For each stage of the journey, you can access how-to guides or short demo videos to walk you through the process. You can use the topic list below to quickly answer questions. We're also here to help - send a message through the chat box in Carbon by Indigo.

Create an Account

Creating your account is the first step toward carbon credit generation! The Carbon by Indigo site is where you will keep track of which of your fields are in the program, their historical and current season data, credit generation, and eventually payment.

Complete your Profile

After creating your account, you will land on your Homepage where you can view and click through the tasks to complete. Your first task will be completing your Profile. Your Profile helps us customize your experience based on your farm's unique goals to ensure you generate the most Carbon credits possible. It only takes a few minutes to complete.

Check out this quick video on how to complete your Profile:

**If you complete your profile and receive a message like the one below stating that one or more of your indications do not currently qualify, please click on "Explore Carbon Resources" to find out more on our Learn tab. You can also reach out to us with questions using the chat box at the bottom right of your account.

Add your Fields

Adding your field boundaries paves the way for earning carbon credits. Your fields provide a canvas for data collection, baseline measurements, soil samples, and ultimately credit generation and payment. That is why it is very important to make sure your boundaries are as accurate as possible.


Add Practice Change & Check Eligibility

Once you have finished adding all your fields, it's time to check their eligibility for the program. Confirming the eligibility of your fields is an important step to help you and Indigo understand which fields stand to earn credits in the Carbon by Indigo program. If your field isn't currently eligible, don't worry. We are hoping to expand certain eligibilities and it doesn't hurt to have your boundary mapped.

Sign Contract

The final step in the Indigo Carbon enrollment process is for you to contract your eligible fields. After landing on the Contracts page, you can download and review an example contract before signing by clicking on the "Download an Example Contract" link at the top right.

Next Steps:

Once you have finished the enrollment process, we’ll support you through developing and implementing your new practice changes or expanding current ones. You can then begin entering your historical management records on your contracted fields.

If you are ever unsure what to do next, remember you can check your Homepage to see what your next task is.
