    For anyone who uses a Gregson-Clark drop in sprayer, which size tip do you use. I'm spraying Manage only with this unit.

    All depends on what rate you want to apply. You'll have to get used to calibrating if you want to get it right. I'll bet Rhett Clark could help you out. Or pick up a Spraying Systems catalogue and all the steps are clearly written for you. Neal

    Its the rittenhouse model. 5 foot boom, using .22 gpm Yellow TurboFlood Jet nozzles I am getting about 25,000 sq ft per 9 gallons at 3.5 MPH, 27PSI. I think dropping the pressure to 15-20 will get you more coverage. I am going to just by a few different tips and experiment for the best results, but this setup works with par III, just tried it and the weeds are drooping already. 16 degress C this morning with no wind.

    What tips size you using with manage. Whats in manage?
