The 1000's have the exact same precipitation rate as the 3000's, so you shouldn't have any difference in runtime if all variables are the same (sun, grade, soil type, plant type, etc.) In fact, they basically all have the exact same precipitation rate (hence the name Matched Precipitation Rotator) with the lone exception being the 3500 does stray off just a bit on that, but I still say it's awfully close in a relative world, especially based on the alternative broadcast methods.
