Need Help with new sprayer and Fungicide

I bought a 200 gallon sprayer last week. I have never sprayed before only put out granular fungicide. I am getting a 16 oz bottle of disarm. I have heard that 1 bottle (16oz) will do the whole 200 gallon sprayer at 2 acres?
Does anyone know if its true, or what rate I should look at instead? I am trying to figure what to charge and how much product 200 gallons needs and coverage.

Have you calibrated yet? The label should give you all the info needed.

Your sprayer manual is the first place start. Then operated it some with water and check your methods.

Then you have to read the lable of everything you will be using.

Good luck.

You have to be certified, licensed, and insured to spray any control product. Study the manuals and learn how to calibrate, your sprayer. Do not spray any property until you know what you are doing.
You must know how much liquid you are applying per thousand sqft.
