    Look under mixing. Assuming h industry average of one gallon per k coverage for handheld and backpack sprayers you can determine what you need

    I think you need 1.25 oz per gallon based on your spray volume resulting in 1.5% solution

    This does not make sense. If you are licensed, and if you kill everything--you will have bare soil--and that invites new weed seeds--not to mention soil erosion, mud and dust due to wind. Tall brush and vines cannot withstand mowing. Area needs to be planted in a grass suitable to your area and mowed regularly. Bermuda, right?
    Otherwise, weeds will return. Vines should be cut off at the soil level--everything above the cut will die. Then start to cut--never letting the vines get over 2 inches tall.

    If he's dealing with kudzu, total kill is pretty much the only solution.

    Kudzu is like a super vine on steroids... "The plant that swallowed the south"

    Against Kudzu, kleen up pro or any other glyphosate product simply will not work. It'll burn back some foliage, but the vine will laugh at it. What i would suggest, and it may still need a couple of shots, is some of that kleen-up pro at 3oz to gal of water and add .75 to 1 oz of trimec 992 or some other three-way product. Perhaps some surfactant as well, but i suspect the kleen-up pro already has this in it.

    You could use the kleen up pro alone, but as another post suggested - you'd need to but the vines at ground level. Then as they return, you could then start hitting them with the kleen-up pro, and this should be somewhat effective for control.
