For lawns what is the dilution rate of ounces per gallon using Hydretain RTS?


General application rate for turf - Through hose-end sprayer apply 9 oz. per 1,000 sq. ft. once every 3 months or maintain monthly at 1/3 rate after initial full rate application. One quart treats up to 3,500 Sq. Ft. For best results apply to wet soil. Water in with at least 1/10 inch of water within the first hour to insure Hydretain RTS is washed off foliage and into the soil. Within 24 hours, follow with enough additional water to carry Hydretain down to and throughout the root zone. (The amount of additional water required to carry Hydretain throughout the root zone is dependant on the depth of the root zone of the treated area. Usually 1/4 to 1/2 inch of water is required.) Additional Hydretain may be required to correct difficult and extreme dry spot areas. Hydretain may be applied at up to 5 times the general application rate as a single treatment or in multiple applications. The Hydretain quart bottle has a ready to use hose-end proportioner applicator which dilutes as it sprays. Just attach a garden hose, break off the safety tab, turn the knob to the “on” position and begin applying. For maximum coverage, use broad spray strokes allowing for up to a 20' swath (10 feet in either direction).
