ISO 8224-1:2002 specifies the operational characteristics of, and laboratory and field test methods for, traveller irrigation machines. It includes user-oriented technical information for presentation in the manufacturer's accompanying product literature, laboratory test procedures for evaluating the uniformity of water application on an irrigated strip by a machine operating within a specified range of conditions and for determining the maximum travelling rates the drive mechanism is able to achieve in response to specified operating conditions, and field test procedures for determining the uniformity of water application on a given irrigated strip under local conditions prevailing in the field at time of testing.
It is applicable only to traveller irrigation machine types, and not to other types such as centre-pivot or lateral irrigation machines.
