Switch to MSM or one more round of Cleggs cocktail??
I sprayed the Atrazine/Weed Free Zone/Sticker cocktail last Saturday with pretty good results... however when I mowed today, I found some areas where it didn't do the job well enough

I have a new bottle of MSM and I still have enough for the cocktail mix... temps are rising and I'm concerned about doing damage

What y'all got??

Also, what is the mix rate for MSM/1000?? I read the entire booklet, and only found per acre... and i suck at math

At this point I would do barricade and msm. What brand of msm did you buy and I’ll do you mix rate

It's by weight but there are some conversions. I think it's like 0.1tsp per gallon. A pretty small amount. I would mix it up and spot spray. It doesn't go bad after mixed so you can probably have some to repeat.

I have a 4 gallon backpack sprayer and roughly 10,000 sqft of yard

I’ll do the math tomorrow but your backpack should have come with a fan tip sprayer. That is the one you will need. It will spray at .67 gallons per minute. That’s the calculation I’ll use to figure out the mix rate.

1/8 teaspoon per 1 or 2 gal of water per 1000 sq ft. Add a couple tsp of surfactant.

Here is a link from another thread LINK. Third post down I have some calculations.

If you look on the same link that craw posted I posted an imgur link to my fill chart. I use Manor but it has the same active ingredient percent as the one you use.

That is a fan tip sprayer at .67 gallons a minute and 1,000 square feet per minute if you are trying to cover the whole property.

I only use fan tip sprayers. No cones.

I also use fan tips - the more expensive hand or backpack sprayers, Solo for example, usually come with a few different tips, including fan tips, that you can switch out for different applications. The less expensive sprayers usually just come with the adjustable cone tip.

yall are speaking a foreign language to me. so the sprayer i posted above doesn't have a fan tip? is it ok to use? seemed to do fine with the cocktail.

can you link a somewhat affordable sprayer with a fan tip?
