Heritage instructions go into great detail regarding all the safety measures to take regarding clothing, gloves, and stress the toxicity of the product. The 4 oz. bottle contains granules with an easy to dispense lid. I used a dedicated measuring spoon and my one gallon spray container. With the ability to direct the spray wand just where I needed, there was no problem with spray drift. I chose the granules to mix with water over the bag product that would require a spreader, and I am most happy with my choice. This small bottle is easy to store with left over material.
I am blessed with a lawn that receives significant run-off from an adjacent golf course. Slow drainage on centipede turf equals raging large patch here in the coastal south. Using the Heritage fungicide in an alternating pattern with a second chemcial class has basically eliminated the problem. Application rate has been 0.3 oz per 1000 square feet of lawn surface area. Key was to start early in the season, in other words, begin applications before the disease actually becomes active. I am using 21 day intervals, which seems to be enough by starting applications in late June.
How many square feet will a 4 oz bottle of Heritage cover and how to mix per gallon?

I will be applying this with a backpack sprayer and won't need anywhere near 100 gallons. How can I mix this, looks like I will need to add 0.12 oz to make three gallons! Ideas?
Also, do I need to mix it by weight or volume?
Page 6-8 of the Hertiage DF 50 product label will give the exact usage rates for each disease. Generally speaking you will need to use .2-.7 of an ounce of Heritage DF 50 in 1-4 gallons of water per 1,000 sq ft of area that needs to be treated. Did you get a measuring cup with your Heritage DF 50?
