Cassandra graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with a degree in Agricultural System Management focused in irrigation. While attending school she worked for an agricultural irrigation company assisting with irrigation design and managing installation projects. After graduation she ran all store operations for multiple locations along the central coast as well as doing irrigation designs for larger projects.
Cassandra has always been most interested in substrate growing and automation. Coming from a younger generation, she sees the need for agriculture to become more automated and is eager to help growers attain those goals. Her experience has allowed her to pursue her passion for design and installation of automated irrigation systems, focusing mainly on substrate and greenhouse applications.
Frank began working in the agriculture industry in 2006 managing a local irrigation dealership in the Salinas Valley. Later he moved into sales and design both locally in Salinas and expanding down into Santa Maria and Oxnard. His dedication to doing what is best for the grower has allowed for him to build long term relationships built on mutual trust with his customers.
This has been very helpful as Frank helps growers transition from conventional farming practices to the future of technology and automation. His background in computer science has allowed for him to lead the way for integrating technology with agriculture while his reputation lets his growers know that they will be supported every step of the way throughout the transition and learning process.
Frank is recognized by the Irrigation Association as a Certified Irrigation Designer (CID), Agriculture Irrigation Specialist (CAIS), and a Certified Irrigation Contractor (CIC). As well as a Technical Service Provider (TSP) by the NRCS. He also holds a General Engineering contractors license from the CSLB.
Josh graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with a degree in Agricultural System Management. During and after college, he worked for a local irrigation district concentrating on compliances for state regulations which led into open channel automation. With interest and drive to learn more about automation, Josh worked for an international canal automation company as an engineer in Mexico and the Mid-Western United States.
After working with farmers on automated alfalfa valves and flood gates, Josh realized he wanted to work more with growers instead of state and federal projects. Taking the knowledge of large-scale, gravity fed automated irrigation systems, Josh began working for IDC and implementing automation methods with large-scale drip irrigation systems. He focuses primarily in the Central Valley area around the Dos Palos branch designing and installing automated irrigation systems to simply reduce labor and increase yield.
Noel was born and raised in the Salinas Valley. After graduating high school in ’98, Noel pursued a career in golf becoming a golf professional in 2000. Noel ended his professional career in 2011, seeking more for himself. With high end mobile stereo and audio-visual systems as a hobby since he was young, Noel transitioned into Ag Technology where he discovered a new passion for monitoring and control systems.
Noel developed a keen eye for detail from his experience in overseeing the R&D department of new sensory products. Learning from his own installations and experiences in the field, he hopes that he can help simplify and help growers understand their automated systems. Noel is excited to be a part of new technologies that will be incorporated in the future which will help lead the industry for the next generation of automated farming.
