The C3 Take
  • FarmHQ, formerly CODA Farm Technologies, is a startup that is looking to automate the irrigation process for farmers.
  • The firm’s system controls water flows and shares irrigation data to the user in real time with an app on a phone.
  • Last year this system helped farmers save approximately 365 million gallons of water over roughly 40,000 acres on customer farms.
  • The company recently raised $750,000 in seed funding.
