View Full Version : How much water per 1000Sq?

04-12-2010, 10:30 PM
Just bought a 25g Fimco pull behind for my yard (yeah, I know). If I read the manual correctly I'm going to be going 1 MPH if I follow the Mfg suggested rate of 1G water per per 1000 sq'. Sure I'll calculate that out, but it won't be that far off. Some here seem to suggest less water /1000 sq'. I've read, as an exmaple, some folks use a quart per 1000. Which I can see, you'd be running 4 imes faster. If it was enough wetting agent to get good coverage..

Whats the general consensus on the amount of water per 1000'?

thanks ya'll!

I just sprayed 2,4, D on Friday from a 20 Gal. ATV Boomer sprayer with a 20 ft. Boom at 10 gal/acre and got a good kill.

This helped too... http://floridaturf.com/bermuda/spraycal.htm

.5 gal to 1.5 gal per 1000 is ok for just herbicide. If are putting down liquid fert, then you need more water

hand sprayers and backpacks put down about a quart per thousand--it works out OK if you adjust your herbicide strength accordingly.

Thanks guys! As I've been seeing, it varies from a quart to 2g per 1000.

Course Dogins, math might be hurtin some :)...

BS1190, I'm thinking you've probably cleared it up the most for me. Thanks,
