Spot Treatments with a Backpack Sprayer Application Rates

Velocity PM has a very low-use-rate, requiring a small syringe for mixing exact measurements when using small spray tanks. The below recommendations are based on applications with a backpack sprayer that has been calibrated to deliver one (1) gallon of spray solution per 1000 square feet.

• Mix 1.5 ml (.05 fl oz) of Velocity PM for every gallon of water and apply over 1000 square feet.

• Spot treat Poa patches twice with the above mixture 14 - 21 days apart.

• Avoid any unnecessary sprayer overlap.

• Change the dilution rate accordingly if the backpack sprayer is calibrated to deliver anything different from one (1) gallon of spray solution per 1,000 sq ft.
