I have some that have ldns over the truss rods on 60” spacing that spread the water application to help infiltration. Probably nozzles about 30” off ground. Another low water pivot has wobblers on 10 ft spacing about 4 ft off the ground. Lots less hose and equipment and nozzles to clean on this pivot. The wobblers make large droplets which I feel are less subject to evaporation. Some new pivots are on 30” spacing so can use bubblers pads which also make large droplets. Some have 30” on outside 60” in middle spans and 90” on inside 2 or 3 spans to have larger nozzles.
