The application rate for Dismiss Turf Herbicide will depend on your grass type. The rate for cool seasons grasses is 0.092-0.18 fl oz per 1,000 sq ft or 4-8 oz per acre and 0.18-0.275 fl oz per 1,000 sq ft or 8-12 oz per acre for warm season grasses.
In order to determine the amount of water you will need to use in your 100 gal tank you will need to mark off a 1,000 sq ft area and go over that area with just water. You will then need to do the math to determine how much water will cover your entire area you are planning to treat and determine the amount of product used for your grass type. For example, if it takes 2 gallons of water to cover 1,000 sq ft and you have a cool season grass and you are planning to treat 5,000 sq ft you will need to use 0.46-0.9 fl oz in 10 gallons of water to cover the entire 5,000 sq ft.

It is important to keep in mind that your water is just a carrier, and how much water is needed to get uniform coverage will vary with your equipment and the speed at which it is moving. Therefore, it is hard to estimate exactly how many gallons of water will be used when you are covering a large area with the Dismiss Turf Herbicide. You can break down the rate to 0.18 to 0.275 ounces per 1,000 square feet, using adequate water to get thorough coverage of the area using your equipment.
Dismiss Turf Herbicide is made to control nutsedge in listed turfgrasses without harm. Please see the product label for a list of tolerent grasses.
