One of the most important issues in increasing the efficiency of modern irrigation systems is their field evaluation after exploiting. Irrigation efficiency is the main indicator in measuring and managing agricultural water consumption. This study was carried out in order to evaluate the hydraulic performance of center pivot irrigation system at Shahriar and Eshtehard cities in Tehran and Alborz Provinces respectively. In order to measure water consumption, the systems were evaluated using application efficiency (Ea) and potential application efficiency of low quarter (PELQ) indicators. Moreover, the irrigation distribution uniformity was evaluation through using coefficient of uniformity (CU) and distribution uniformity (DU). For calculating these indicators, the field measurement was used to collect water under each system. It was found that the Herman and Hein CU for the Shahriar and Eshtehard center pivot systems were 70.2 and 88% respectively and the DU for these systems were, 47.87 and 81.3 % respectively. The adequacy rates and Ea were 36 and 12% and 85, 81% respectively. In terms of efficiency, these systems are in good condition. The calculated PELQ is calculated 85.3 and 66.5% respectively, which are acceptable.
