    I am looking at changing foliar fertilizer this year. I am looking at this 18-3-6 50% SRN with Micronutrients. It is made by Plant Food Co. I can purchase 5 gals for $106.
    It says apply at the rate of 4 ounces per 1000 sq. ft. or approximately 1.25 gallons per acre. How many ounces should I put in for 65gal of water?

    I am hoping to get roughly 1 to 1.5 acres out of it.

    You are going to have to know first. If it covers 1 acre you will need 4X43.56 or 174.24oz

    If it covers 1.5 acres you will need 4X65.34 or 261.36oz

    If you want to cover an Acre you'll want at least 1.25 gals...

    If you are going to cover that acre using 65 gallons of water,,, or 300 gallons of water to cover that same acre,,, it will not change the fact you want to add 1.25 gallons of product to the 65 or the 300 gallon tank, becuz you're covering an acre... Keep it Simple... :)
