Step-by-step enrollment:


  1. Create an account

  2. Upload boundary files or data spec

  3. Run Smart Defaults - Historic Rotation

  4. Run Smart Defaults - Future Rotations

  5. Correct verifiable years with farm records


2b. Uploading a dataspec

If your farm operations manages your records through a farm software platform (e.g. Granular Business), this process can be fairly straightforward. You will receive a single .json file that contains all the field boundaries associated with your project along with all of the data needed for Nori that is stored within that farm software platform. Once you receive the .json file, begin with the steps below. 

  1. Once you are in your project page, select “Import data spec.” This will lead you to an uploads page where you will import a .json file. 

  1. After the file is selected, the page will take a moment to upload the file. Depending on how large your project is, the upload may take a few minutes. Note:  If you receive error messages, check with your supply account manager or send an email to

  2. Once the file is uploaded, all of the fields in your project will appear in  the projects page with a boundary file and field name. 

  3. Under any of the fields, click “Edit records”. This will bring you to the Nori Spreadsheet. 

  1. Begin with quality checking the data on the Inputs tab. For more information on this tab, read the Explanation of Inputs section. 

  2. Check the historical information from each field.  Select the “ + “ sign that is to the far left of the “Details” column title in Row 1 at the top of the spreadsheet to expand this section of the spreadsheet. You must select a Switch Year and the earliest year for which you have the proof of old practices. Change any variables as needed, then select the “ - ” sign to re-collapse the field history section.

  1. Scroll down the page to where your data begins, typically past 2010.

  2. Quality check your data each field (crop type, tillage, fertilizer, etc) to confirm accuracy.

  3. If there are any missing years, and you would like to edit the spreadsheet manually, see the enrolling through self enrollment section for guidance.

  4. The current data for your project is now complete.

  5. Continue to “Historical Records - Smart Defaults.”
