also I applied the rate per acre which according to the label should give me about 7 to 8 months control.

I mix enough spray for 75k in each tank. It's much easier to weigh the product out than to use teaspoons. I'm putting 23 oz per tank now....not sure how many teaspoons that would be.

Here are some kitchen scales. Fourteen dollars. You may need to weigh other products also, at times.

I do have scales ...just wondered if anyone else had converted the spoons to cups. I did so I wouldnt have to keep measuring weights... just calculate how many spoons I need and turn into cups. I have also weighed a few to see if it was running true.... seems to be. Curious though .. what strengths does everyone like to go with? Are you trying to achieve 4-6 months of control.. or 6-8? I am currently mixing to cover about 6 months but will reapply at four months.. and use simazine to cover the late winter period.
