Sprayed WFZ on Yard in February

Yard

2/??/2024 – Using info from last year it was sprayed after greening (too late) sprayed the lawn with Fertilome’s Weed Free Zone (WFZ). WFZ kills/controls Florida Betony, Spiderwort, and Creeping Charlie which are major issues this year…as usual.

2/21/2024 – Retested Fergie’s run time in the Pecan Orchard between 5 trees (200) feet. Running in 1H gear at 2100 RPM she covered the 200 ft in about 34 seconds which is 3 MPH. That is a good speed for the yard and small pasture.

Today’s Plan

  • Apply the upper end of the range at 1.25 oz/KSF for WFZ for 1,000 SF. The Label says the range is 0.75 – 1.5 fl. oz. per KSF.
  • For Fergie at 2100 RPM in Gear 1H she goes 3 MPH. Approximate tip height: 33”.
  • From Ag-Sprayer chart – 3 MPH at 40 psi puts out 0.30 Gallons/1000 SF.
  • Areas to spray – 15,500+3,000+5,000+4,000+4,600+5,000(misc) = 37,100 SF. See the layout below.
  • The Mix
    • Water amount required will be 0.3 gal x 37.1 KSF = 11.1 gallons
    • Nonionic Surfactant at 1 TBSP/Gallon for 11 gallons = 0.7 Cups (16 Tbsp in a cup)
    • WFZ at 1.25 oz/KSF for 37.1 KSF = 46 oz.
