​This presentation addresses the basics of pivot irrigation: (1) when and how much to irrigate (sensor thresholds; low volume/fast spin versus more volume/slow spin); (2) sensor use and placement (in pivot-irrigated field; in relation to crop row); and (3) adapting to your scenario (pivot capacity; full circle versus partial circles).
