This trial aimed at evaluating the performance of a lateral move type sprinkler irrigation system. Data collection was obtained according to ABNT and the precipitation assay was carried out at relay speeds of 100, 80, 60 and 40%, collectors were distributed in 4.5 m distance and arranged in three rows separated by 10 m between rows. It was verified that the mobile showed good performance at all speeds. The best uniformity coefficients, CUC (88.54%) and CUD (80.79%) were for 60% speed, however, the irrigation suitability was lowest (26.34%).
