    When looking at the precipitation rates there is one rate that has a square and another that has a triangle. What's the difference and which one should I use to calculate the MPR value?

    From my understanding the square and the triangle are head positions and the rate is determined from this. You would need to know the head placement.

    Square spacing and triangular spacing....the precip rates are different because the spacing is different, hence fewer or more heads. Just don't mix rotors and sprays and you won't have too many problems.....;)
