Its not really an issue of gallons per acre as long as you get at least 10 gpa, its an issue of coverage of active ingredient per acre. Depends on your pump, sprayer, speed, etc. how many gallons per acre you need to put out to achieve desired rate be that 12 oz/acre, 16 oz/acre or whatever. It would be best to calibrate your sprayer. Just google sprayer calibration and you should find instructions.


^^^This. With being in the chemical business it's not the amount of chemical you use; it is how you apply it.

when I did this with my sprayer it came out that I needed to run 4-5mph to get correct application.

If you can get by Jackson, your local TWRA private lands biologist should have a box of measuring cups (for free) that will walk you through the entire process. His name is Chris Hunter and he is based in the NRCS Area Office. Even if he is out, which will likely be the case, someone should be able to get you one. I have done it with pto driven sprayers and 25 gal atv sprayers.

Same goes for everyone else- look up your local private land bios- you are paying their salaries, get your money's worth


Edit: Dr Craig Harper almost always votes clethodim over sethoxydim. And always read the label of the herbicide you want to use.
