I have 3 4050 sq ft plots (90\\\’x45\\\’) and the ph is at 4.5. My soil test results show i need to apply 9 tons per acre of lime, which is roughly 1100 lbs per plot. So should i be using 1 gallon of plotstart per plot? If so how much of the plot start do i mix in a 2 gallon sprayer?

Jason, you are correct in your calculations and the amount of PlotStart needed. No need to overthink the application. Simply mix the 2.5 gallon jug of PlotStart with enough water to evnly distribute over each plot. So for those plots roughly fill half the tank with PlotStart, and the rest with water and apply half of the plot, then repeat. Do this for each plot unless it takes you 3-4 tanks to treat one of the plots in which case you would distribute the PlotStart evenly across the 4 tanks.
