    Is it possible to spray Banner Maxx, Compass or Heritage with a hose end sprayer? If so, any recommendations on a brand? Thanks!

    You can, but you do not get as good coverage with a hose end sprayer as you would with a spray tank...

    And by coverage I mean that if you're trying to put down 1.5 oz per 1000, you may not get 1.5 oz over the whole area. Know what I mean?

    Let's define hose end sprayer first of all.... If you mean those sprayers that use a constant PURE water flow from a point source than I would say you are wasting money. If you are a closed spray tank with agitation, etc. then you would have a good chance of a decent application. Those fungicides seem to work best with flat fan, variable pressure nozzles on a boom system.
