I also calibrate spray rate per 1000 square feet for easier calculation, but if your 25 gallon tank is only covering approx. 10,000 square feet, you'll have to refill 4 times per acre. That's not very productive.
Edit: I saw your response and it now makes sense. You definitely would be better off with a multi nozzle setup or switch over to an air inducted 110 degree single nozzle and spray without sweeping. Holding that nozzle 16 to 20 inches above the ground, at a normal walking pace, you should be able to cover 1000 square feet in approximately 2 minutes. You'll still have to calibrate by timing your 1000 square foot area, then capture the spray for that same time period. Good luck!

The next time someone complains about your pricing, ask them how much their barber would charge to come to their house to cut their hair.
