    The labels pretty clear about mix rate per acre 1.5 oz with 3-way. I'm confused about mixing a 5 gallon back pack. I'm assuming the eye dropper is for back packs It measures .7 ml and 1 ml. So how much per 5 gal. BP? Thanks in advance.

    That's easy. How many Sq. Ft. does your backpack cover. If you don't know go find out. Since 1 oz equals 30 milliliters than 1.5 oz's equals 45 milliliters. 1.5 oz's per acre equals 1.03 milliliters per 1000 Sq. Ft.
