At time = 0 seconds the border was turned on. We observed the following data: Distance Down Field (ft) Time (min:sec) 10 :45 20 1:35 30 2:40 40 3:56 50 5:20 Station 2: Furrow Irrigation The group was asked to set up the pipe by opening two gaps to two finger-widths each. We attached a dissipation sock to one gap and turned the system on. After the system ran for a couple minutes, we noticed that the furrow that was being hit by the non-dissipated gap of water was deteriorating as the high velocity water from the pipe was eroding the side of the furrow. However, the gap that had the dissipation sock connected to it dispensed water to the furrow that had a much lower velocity, thus reducing the amount of erosion greatly. We then turned the
