    So you guys really dig momentum. I know this may sound stupid but how do you go about figuring exactly how much spray to apply using a backpack sprayer? Do you set up a test? Or do you spray until foliageis soaked? I would really like to know. I think I have a couple of clients that need control and I was wondering how I could spray out the proper amount from a backpack?<br>You guys are great.<p>----------<br>Integrated Landscape Solutions<br>Lexington, KY

    I read the label before I buy the product. At the price of chemicals today I'm going to be sure of what it says before I purchase. If you need a label there are several sites on the internet to get them free.<br>

    back pack calibration: fill backpack with clean water, measure off a square area, example: 100 square feet, spray water over measured area, when finished note remaining water in tank, example: back pack full 4 gallons...water left after spraying 100 square feet is 2 gallons...our back pack sprays 1 gallon over 50 square feet....

    So let me get this straight. 1 gallon of Momentum solution will only cover 100 sqft.? Is that supposed to be 1000sqft? Hey Lazer, what kind of back pack sprayer do you use? I am getting ready to buy one and I was wondering what you use and what kind of nozzle insert you recommend? I really appreciate your feedback. Thanks<p>----------<br>Integrated Landscape Solutions<br>Lexington, KY
