Introduce your grower customers to Carbon by Indigo, review the benefits of the program, and help them enroll in the program. There’s no cost or commitment to enroll.
Farmers decide which qualifying practice changes to make on their farm and how many acres to implement the changes on.
After harvest, agencies help their grower customers to file farm documentation that is required to generate carbon credits. This includes farm documentation that is already stored in the Agency Root platform, which eases the data burden for farmers.
Carbon by Indigo measures the carbon impact of the practices and issues carbon credits through a third-party registry. Indigo’s network of buyers purchases the credits and growers receive at least 75% of the credit price.
49% of growers say they have not been approached about enrolling in a carbon program and 39% have questions about how these programs work.* Carbon programs are an excellent way to meet an emerging need for your grower customers.

Carbon by Indigo is focused on farmer choice and flexibility. There’s no cost to sign up and growers choose the qualifying practices that best fit their operation. Indigo will never ask for any carbon payments to be refunded if a grower needs to leave the program.
Growers receive at least 75% of the average price of the carbon credits generated and sold, which means when markets rise, growers benefit. In the most recent carbon crop, Carbon by Indigo paid growers $30 per credit generated and sold.
