    I want to use this product for weed control. I will be using a 25 gal spray rig pulled behind an ATV. The mixing direction on the lable are very confusing. They don't give you a oz. to gal. ratio. My lawn is fescue and I am trying to control lespedza and clover. I will also be spot spraying. Could someone tell me how many ounces of this product to mix with 1 gallon of water? Thanks, Barry

    How many gallons does your sprayer spray over 1000 sq. Ft.

    My calculations are approx .45 gal/1000 sf or about 18 gal/acre.

    In that case, mix whatever it calls for per 1000 sq. ft. in .45 gallons of water. For example, if (IF -I'm not sure of the ratio, read the label) the label called for 1oz per 1000 sq ft, you would add one oz per .45 gallons of water.

    For your sprayer, take the 25 gallons, and divide by .45. Thats how many 1000 sq. ft, you should mix for, multiply that by your mix rate per 1000 sq. ft.


    If thats too much, you may choose to mix a smaller amount, now that you know how many 1000 sq. ft. you get per gallon.
