Skagit Seed Services skips the night shift, saves big on labor with FarmHQ.  

Equipment: 1 Hydrant Valve, 1 Irrigation Pump, and 2 Hard Hose Reels

Location: Washington, USA

Operation: Seed Grower


Jack Hulbert is a fourth-generation grower of spinach, beet, and cabbage seeds in Skagit Valley, Washington. Jack and his crew faced strong winds during the day, which interfered with the uniformity of their irrigation. To address this issue, they started irrigating at night, which was difficult for their labor budget and crew. Additionally, there was added financial risk when irrigating from the hydrant valve connected to city water.

The Solution

Jack installed FarmHQ on one pump, two reels, and his hydrant valve. Now, he can replace the night shift with a quick look at the FarmHQ app, which cut their irrigation night shift labor down from 5 days a week to zero. It also gives them peace of mind when pulling from their hydrant valve, as every drop is accounted for and they can instantly turn it off from their phone.
