I'm spot spraying Musk Thistle with a hand sprayer and would like to know what amount of Milestone you recommend for a 2 gallon sprayer? Also what is its rain fast time?
For musk thistle, you need to use 3 to 5 oz of Milestone Specialty Herbicide per Acre, which breaks down to about 0.07 – 0.11 oz per 1000 sq ft or per gallon of water in a hand pump sprayer. Per the product label, you can use the lower rates in spring and early summer. Apply at 4 to 5 fl oz per Acre (0.09 – 0.11) when plants are at the late bolt through early flowering growth stages. 2,4-D at 1 lb ae/acre should be tank-mixed with Milestone starting at the late bud stages.
