Can I use Resolute 65 WG with a generic hose end sprayer?

I have a Gilmour 16 oz generic hose end sprayer. I am having a hard time figuring out how much Resolute to put in a full reservoir and what setting to use on the sprayer. Does anyone have experience with this or is it not the way I want to do this?


Resolute 65 WG would not work in a hose end sprayer as it is a water-dispersable granule.

You must know when using an herbicide such as Resolute 65 WG 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 0.185- 0.83 oz (0.5- 2.25 tbs) 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 0.185- .83 oz (0.5- 2.25 tbs) of product with for each 1,000 sq ft area that needs to be treated. Please refer to the product label for full application instructions.
