Big n Tuf mix and spray rate

Can anyone share their mix volumes formula and spray rate of Pronto Big n Tuf (Tractor Supply..... or Roundup, by other name) for gravel road and ditch maintenance? I've been looking at their label and can't quite find what I need. Maybe a 1.5 to 2 % solution? Spray at what rate?

I've got about 1 acre of area in gravel drives on my property along with ditches, that take runoff to seasonal creek. Will be spraying with trailer sprayer with boom behind my atv.

2% solution of glyphosate usually works pretty good, but read your label to make sure.

I switched to Ortho Ground clear instead of Roundup and have had better luck with it lasting longer. I don't remember off hand how much I used. slkpk

Re: Big n Tuf mix and spray rate

I use TSC's Ground Work 50% Glyphosate... pretty close to Big N Tuf's 41%. Here's my spreadsheet I made for my Fimco 15gal. 2.1 gpm sprayer at various speeds. It's confusing, but if you figure out my spreadsheet, you can adjust the numbers to match your equipment.
