    How much agitation is needed in a 60 gal tank where Momentum and possibly Quicksilver were being tank mixed with spreader sticker?

    No such thing as too much. More the better with any mix.

    Not much agitation needed, bypass from the pump should be OK. Run the pump a few moments before beginning spraying at new stops, to equlize the solution again.

    On the other hand, let the pump run 5 minutes if you didn't empty the tank from the previous day--also when mixing a new tank. Two or three agitation nozzles inside the tank would add a lot more agitation from the bypass.
