Application rate is uniform over length of lat average value at the end of the center pivot Cons The lateral does not end up right back at the starting point immediately after having traversed the irrigated area – you either have to “deadhead” back or irrigate in both directions May be more expensive than a pivot due to extra controls, pump on ditch feed, or more friction loss in the flexible feed hose (the hose is fairly expensive)
