    Thats an extremly broad question! It all depends on the size and the chemicals being used!

    The size is about 2 acres. Im spraying 24d for dandelions, chickweed, and thistles. Iestimate it will take about 2 to 3 hours to do the job.

    Try $35.00 per hour plus material.
    My cost for spraying herbicide only would be $ 189.00.
    I actually have to accounts that get herbicide apps. they are sise by side and ther is 5 acres. It takes me 4 hours to it one tank full and get $ 450.00, dont sell yourself short. What happens if the customer isnt happy, are you willing to go back at no charge.
