What that means is, The OP is going to pour 2.5 gallons of trimec into 250 gallons of water. 2.5 Gallons is 320Ounces. SO the Label says "1.1 to 1.5 Ounces per 1 Gallon of water will treat 1,000 sq ft. The Label tells you 1.1 ounces per 1 gallon of water will treat 1,000 sq ft. SO, if you break that down. that's 275 ounces per 250 gallons will treat 250,000 sq ft or 5.7 acres. Plus we all know that you walk 1,000 sq ft per minute. I mean come on. If the label says 1.1 to 1.5 fl oz/1,000 sq ft and he has a 250 gallon tank. It's pretty much simple math. The OP didn't ask what the Spray volume is? Which is .125 to 5.0 gallons/1,000 sq ft. Big difference. Get on the same page buddy No wonder this industry if full of hacks..
You are assuming alot about the OP spray equipment.... I have one sprayer that will cover 12.5 acres with 250 gallons of water and with my skid sprayer I spray 100,000 sq. ft. w/ 300 gallons and my lt rich will do 1 acre with 18 gallons, we need to know what his sprayers spray volume is to tell him if 2.5 gallons is the right amount for 250 gallons of water.
