Is FMC Triple Crown T&O Insecticide concentrated? If it is what is the ratio to water?

What is the dilution rate of Triple Crown for chinch bugs?
For ornamental, the label says "cover the treatment area. Do not use less than 2 gallons of water per 1000 sq ft." Just before "Turf Application Rates" the label says "Use application volumes of up to 10 gallons of final dilution per 1000 square feet when treating dense grass or foliage for uniform coverage." So let's say I am treating 1,000 sq ft of chinch bugs so I decide to use .60 oz (range is .46 to .80). .60 oz should be a little more than 1 tablespoon. How much water should I use to dilute? Is it OK to dilute with only 1 gallon of water as long as I am able to apply the 1 gallon of final dilution easily over the 1,000 sq ft? Or is there a lower limit as with the ornamental instructions? (minimum 2 gals per 1000 sq ft). It seems like if I diluted with 10 gallons that it would take forever to spray it.
Per the Triple Crownproduct label the exact instructions for turf application are: Chinch Bugs infest the base of grass plants and are often found in the thatch layer. Irrigation of the grass area before treatment will optimize the penetration of the insecticide to the area where the chinch bugs are located. Use higher volume applications if the thatch layer is excessive or if a relatively long mowing height is being maintained. Chinch Bugs can be one of the most difficult pests to control in grasses and the higher application rates (Up to 0.8 fluid oz. per 1000 square feet) may be required to control populations that contain both nymphs and adults during the middle of the summer. For low volume applications you can use less than 2 gallons/1000 square feet or up to 10 gallons of water per area when treating dense grass foliage for uniform coverage. So yes it may only take you 1 gallon to cover the area if thin grass. You would not be treating ornamental areas for chinch bugs as that is not where they are found.
