It depends on the type of disease you are controlling. The label actually states for most diseases that you apply .6 oz of Armada per 1000 square feet. If you mix 3 oz in 2 gallons of water, then that 3 oz mixture should be applied over 5000 square feet, which works out to be about a quart and a half per 1000 square feet. After application, you can water in the product into the lawn to help it move into the thatch layer. This would be the equivalent of spraying 5000 square feet with 10 gallons of water.

Armada 50 WDG should be fine to tank mix with a liquid fertilizer as long as both products are applied as directed on the labels for rates. However, when preparing a new tank mix conduct an appropriate compatibility test by mixing proportional amounts of all spray ingredients in a test vessel (jar) prior to tank mixing with other products. Shake mixture vigorously and allow it to stand for five to ten minutes. Rapid precipitations of the ingredients and failure to re-suspend when shaken indicates that the mixture is incompatible and should not be applied. If you perform a compatibility test and have no issues then you can mix a liquid fertilizer with it.
