    I have been using stone wall at 2.3 lbs per 200 gallons. I was speaking with someone and they said they are using more then this per that much water. I was wondering what some of yalls mix rates? and is mine to low?

    also I have heard from different people not to apply 3 way while turf was in transition? I have done it in the past and not had problems but if its not right I don't want to keep doing it. I don't spray once its gets above 85 deg so I don't spray 3 way when its full growing.

    I will be the first to say it.

    Your rate depends on the label says and how much water you are spraying per 1000 sq ft.

    I am spraying 2 gal per 1000. I know label rates are different for New York. I am also applying this on Bermuda and zoysia lawns. I have read the label but I was just checking to see what others are using.

    1/2 oz per 1,000 at 3 gallons per 1,000 or 33.3 oz per 200 gallons.

    I have tried three-way types of solution at 90 degrees with no problems. I plan to try again this year--but sometimes it doesn't get hot, here.

    NO, he is speaking of prodiamine 4fl.....3way rate is higher.

    My point was, you cant go by what someone else is doing, I have found many times they misread the label or cant do simple math......

    yea I do 1oz per 1,000 for 3 way. but yea you are right about that. but I was just seeing if there were differences between what people were using and how much.
