The public comment period is open until Oct. 31. The testing protocol is designed to test how various nozzles perform individually and then how a group of nozzles with various arcs perform together in spacing configurations and arrangements at different operating pressures. The protocol will provide irrigation managers, water providers and end-users with helpful information to improve irrigation performance and efficiency.
 
The testing protocol is available for review and comment here
