By |  March 8, 2022 0 Comments

Hunter Industries has joined forces with turfgrass technology solutions company, POGO Turf Pro to bring new sensor and visual insight integrations to the Hunter Pilot Network. Hunter’s irrigation control system balances watering demands with flow capacities to determine the most efficient watering cycles possible. The software is also fully customizable according to the daily irrigation management needs of the golf course.

According to the company the integration of the hardware and data from POGO with the Pilot Network will allow superintendents to:

  • Utilize powerful scientific insights to achieve maximum irrigation efficiency while saving time and resources.
  • Make more informed scheduling adjustments using real-time soil moisture, salinity and temperature data.
  • Use POGO information to better understand turfgrass performance in between irrigation cycles.
  • Identify and address problem areas with ease using color-coded visual insights that highlight turf needing immediate attention — often before symptoms appear.

“POGO’s approach fits well with our goal of making the superintendent’s life better through innovative and easy-to-use products,” said Jon Truttmann, director of gold irrigation at Hunter Industries. “This visibility into what occurs between irrigation cycles is the logical next step in management.”

According to Truttmann, partnering with a technology leader like POGO will allow Hunter to develop a comprehensive solution for golf course irrigation applications combining the best that both companies have to offer.

“We are absolutely thrilled that Hunter sees the same value for its customers, realizing that what happens between irrigation cycles is so vitally important,” said Carmen Magro, vice president at POGO. “Being incredibly impressed with Hunter’s Pilot Network and seeing it as a large leap forward in our industry, we see great synergy in our technology relationship and look forward to where this takes us.”
