The amount of carrier rate which is expressed in amount per acre or 1000 SF. The amount you use will depend the product, situation, equipment and to some degree personal preference. The product will give you a range which sometimes can vary greatly. For instance I apply most herbicides at 1/3 to 1 gallon of water per 1000 SF. I know it is confusing but at some point it will make sense. Might go to the teejet website and do some reading.
