What is the mix ratio for Trimec Southern Broadleaf Herbicide?
For broadleaf control, you would mix 0.75 oz Trimec Southern Broadleaf Herbicide per 1,000 square feet. The amount of water is not as important as making sure to apply the solution uniformily over the 1,000 square foot section. Most herbicide labels will list how much active ingredient should be used per 1,000 square feet. To calibrate your equipment, for example, mark off an area of 1,000 square feet, and cover that area at your normal pace as evenly as possible. If you used an entire gallon, you would use the recommended amount in 1 gallon of water. If you only use ½ gallon to cover the 1000 square feet then you mix the recommended amount on the product label in a 1/2 gallon of water. The application time varies from region to region. You do want to make sure that the weeds you are treating, are actively growing before application.
