How does Carbon by Indigo work?

Carbon by Indigo connects growers to additional sources of income by helping them sell highly-sought agricultural carbon credits. Indigo determines the credits generated on the farm via cutting edge soil science and technology so growers can focus on the health of their soil and business.

1: Adopt a new practice

Kick off by informing Indigo on which fields you have recently implemented or plan to implement new carbon farming practices. Indigo will provide the support you need as you move through the growing season.

2: Report what you did

Next you will report on your historic and current field management practices. Indigo will take the records and calculate how much carbon has been sequestered.

3: Verify results

Indigo works with independent carbon credit verifiers and issuers to ensure the credits you generate abide by the highest industry standards, making them especially appealing to selective buyers.

4: Get paid

Finally, Indigo sells the verified carbon credits after they are issued and pays you for the carbon credits you generated.
