    145,000 sqft. How about, cost of product, plus about a dollar a minute for your time, plus extra dollar a minute if you use ride-on equipment.

    Is this by backpack--or do you have suitable equipment?

    Does your wife sit on the tailgate and spray--or does she get to turn on the air and drive?

    We need a lot more info. Where do you get your pesticides from now? Are you a volume buyer? What is your sprayer monted on? A pick-up truck? A ride on boom sprayer? Is it just 1 long grass area or many small parts?
