How much Tupersan 50 WP do I need to add per gal for 1000 sq ft?
Can I use a hose end sprayer? If so, how much product per gal do I mix up to put in hose end sprayer?
The first thing you need to know when using an herbicide such as Tupersan WP is that the exact amount of water you dilute it with is not important. It is only important to make sure you are using the correct amount of product per 1,000 sq ft of lawn. Use too much and you risk damaging your lawn, use too little and you will not get adequate results. You will need to use 1 1/2 oz - 9 oz of Tupersan per 1,000 sq ft . To decide how much water you want to use, you should mark a 1,000 sq ft area, fill your sprayer with water ONLY, and start walking and spraying just as if you were doing the actual application of herbicide. When you are done walking and spraying the 1,000 sq ft area note how much water it took you to spray that area, and that is the amount you will want to mix 1 1/2 oz - 9 oz of product for each 1,000 sq ft area that needs to be treated. You will need to make sure treated areas are irrigated with at least 1/2 inch of water (either by rainfall or by sprinkler) following the application. We do not recommend using a hose end sprayer for this type of application.
