Sprinkler irrigation uniformity varies substantially between irrigation events and single irrigation event evaluations should not be extrapolated to whole season performance. The spatial pattern of low uniformity applications appear reasonably consistent and are likely to be dominated by design and maintenance issues. The frequency distribution of high uniformity applications are more normally distributed than for low uniformity applications.
