How do I dilute Trimec Southern? I will be using a 15-gallon sprayer.


Trimec Southern Broadleaf Herbicide is applied at the rate of 0.37 - 0.75 oz per 1,000 sq. ft. The amount of water is not as important as making sure to apply the solution uniformly over the 1,000 square foot section. Most herbicide labels will list how much active ingredient should be used per 1,000 square feet. To calibrate your equipment, for example, mark off an area of 1,000 square feet, and cover that area at your normal pace as evenly as possible. If you used an entire gallon, you would use the recommended amount in 1 gallon of water. If you only use ½ gallon to cover the 1000 square feet then you mix the recommended amount of the product label in a 1/2 gallon of water.
