Workers will irrigate the following agricultural products: Alfalfa, bermuda grass, broccoli, butter lettuce, cantaloupes, green cabbage, green leaf lettuce, head lettuce, red cabbage, red leaf lettuce, romaine lettuce, sudan grass, watermelons, and wheat. All products follow a similar lifecycle that corresponds to the following: an irrigation before planting, which would be described as a flat water. It is then followed by a germination water, or a water after planting. The next phase corresponds to the plant’s respective growing lifecycle, with irrigation intervals varying depending on weather and soil conditions. The final stage will be considered harvest irrigations, which are the final irrigation before the commodity is harvested. In addition, workers will be required to perform all operations related to sprinkler pipe irrigation, maintenance, and storage. This encompasses unstacking irrigation pipes from their seasonal storage yards and restacking them onto portable trailers and ultimately installing them into fields that are prepared for planting and germination irrigation.

Workers will also on occasion be asked to replace damaged or broken parts, ie. rubber gaskets or sprinkler heads, as part of routine pipe maintenance. This maintenance will not require the use of any power tools or sawing equipment, simply a wrench and pliers.
