    My father in law enjoys doing all of his own Landscaping and since I do not do fert. he decided to go down to Lesco and bought that huge jug of prosecutor. He didnt ask the salesman about how much to mix and we started to look over that manual( or should I call it a book) about mixing.

    Anyways long story short, I know you guys in the fert. biz know from experiance what is the best mix for basic weeds in flower beds along with weeds in his rock boarders.

    How much prosecutor should he use to mix with a 3 gallon sprayer? Thanks for your help.

    It's on the directions , dude .
    If we are talking 41 % glyfosate as the A.I. , then I mix 2oz per gal

    the label is a bit different in that it gives a rate per square foot, and not a rate per gal like the roundup label. but any were from 1oz(for over teh top apps) to 4oz at the high end.

    I go 2-4 oz/gal deepending on what type of weeds & grass I'm spraying. 4 oz/ gal will take out about anything.
