Cups at least 2.5&rdquo; in diameter are placed in a line parallel to the pivot, stretching from the center base to the end of the wetted area. Cups should be spaced about 15&rsquo; apart for high pressure systems and 10&rsquo; apart for low pressure systems. Cups may be placed in holders, or on the ground, secured with stakes or weighted with rocks. The center pivot is operated at a speed that will apply at least 0.60 inches of average depth. Wind speed must be less than 11 mph, and accuracy is greatest when wind speed is less than 2.5 mph. Overnight is a good time to perform the test, which can be done during a regularly scheduled watering.</p> <p>The amount of water in each cup is measured and the data entered into a spreadsheet, which calculates distribution variations from the mean and the uniformity coefficient. A uniformity coefficient above 80% is considered acceptable. Free spreadsheets and instructions, plus a tutorial video, are available from the <a href="http://www.extension.umn.edu/agriculture/irrigation/irrigation-management/" target="_blank">University of Minnesota&rsquo;s Extension irrigation website</a>.</p> Photo: Joshua Stamper, University of Minnesota Extension
