    I have a 60gallon sprayer calibrated at 2gpm. Having problems understanding the Trimec Classic label on mixture. Its states apply 1.2-1.5oz of product in a .5 to 6 gallons of water per 1k sq ft. So how much do I mix into 60gallon tank spraying 2gpm? Also, sprays 2 gallons per 1k sq ftthanks

    Well you have to find out how much water your spraying per th sqft than you will know how much to add to your tank. don't worry about the .5 to 6 gals per th find out what your spraying that just means you need to be inbetween those specs some where.

    The label says 1.2 - 1.5 ozs. per 1000 square ft. If your unit puts out 2 gal./1000 square ft. go with 1.2 - 1.5 ozs. in 2 gallons or 18 - 22.5 ozs. for 60 gallons.
