I would like to spray 2 or 3 food plots with the Deergro. I have a 16 gallon ATV sprayer with a spray tip that sprays roughly a 6 foot wide area behind my 4wheeler. My food plots are about 1000 to 1500 square feet each, not acres big. What would roughly be the correct water to deergro ratio for these food plots. I hunt near pines so I dont know how much i would need to spray. The soil was tested at roughly 5 – 6 ph

If your food plots are roughly 1/40th of an acre or 1,000-1,500 sq ft then the easiest application would be to simply reduce the product size to cups. 1 gallon of PlotStart that treats roughly 1/2 acre or 21,780 sq ft. There are 16 cups in a gallon so essentially 1 cup treats 1,300-1,500 sq ft. PlotStart’s shelf life is 2 years so one, 1 gallon jug would get you through 2 years with the three small food plots. As far as applying check out the video of how to mix and apply the products here.
