Center pivot irrigation is an important irrigation method in Missouri. However, only about half of the pivots in MO are the ”typical”, full-circle seven-span pivots. The other half are either partial circles and/or have shorter or longer span lengths. Both items significantly impact the economics of pivot irrigation; however, while the percent of circle being irrigated affects unit area costs it does not affect uniformity.
