The two principal questions explored in the bulletin are the following:
- What is the maximum that an irrigator can afford to pay to convert a center pivot system from to reduced pressure; and
- How much less would the expected yields under reduced pressure have to be for a farmer to be well advised to purchase an irrigation system with high rather than reduced water distribution pressure?
