Herbicides are a lot different than other concentrated products and can be hard to understand at first. The application rate depends on the speed at which you apply the product and the output of your sprayer. The amount of water used to apply Grass Out Max herbicide is not critical, but should be sufficient for uniform coverage of the target area. Calibrate by determining the volume of water required to treat 1,000 square feet. Use this calibration volume to determine the amount of water and Grass Out Max herbicide needed to treat the target area (see the following calibration example). Note: Sprayer calibration (volume of spray needed to treat 1,000 square feet) will vary with each individual operator.
Steps in Calibration:
1. Mark an area of 1,000 square feet (i.e. 20 by 50 feet or 25 by 40 feet).
2. Place the sprayer on a level surface and add water noting the final level of water in the spray tank.
3. Spray the marked area with a sufficient volume of water to provide uniform coverage. Refill the sprayer to the same level as before measuring the amount of water added. The measured water added to the sprayer is the volume needed to cover 1,000 square feet.
4. Determine the application rate (0.073- .55 fl. oz./1,000 sq. ft.) for Grass Out from the Recommendations section of this label.
5. To each volume of water used as measured in step 3, add the amount of Grass Out as determined in step 4.
Example: If the sprayer uses 1 gallon of water to cover 1,000 square feet and the desired application rate of Grass Out is .55 fluid oz./1,000 square feet, then you would add .55 fluid ounces of Grass Out to every 1 gallon of water to be used.

Grass Out Max also requires the use of a Non Ionic Surfactant which you will use at its labeled rates which are normally close to 1-2 teaspoons per gallon of water.
