Calculating Dilutions and Site Size:  Calculating Dilutions and Site Size Pesticide Applicator Core Training Manual Part B, Chapter 3 Chapter Concepts:  Chapter Concepts Determine pesticide amounts Dilution formulas Conversion formulas Calculating surface area Calculating volumes Correct Application:  Correct Application Dilute the formulation Calculate site size Calibrate equipment APPROVED Diluting Pesticides Correctly:  Diluting Pesticides Correctly Know sprayer capacity Calibrate equipment Correctly measure site Know the application rate Use the formulas Use common sense! Diluting Dry Formulations:  Diluting Dry Formulations Pounds Per 100 Gallons Diluting Dry Formulations:  Diluting Dry Formulations Pounds of Formulation Per Acre Diluting Dry Formulations:  Diluting Dry Formulations Pounds of Formulation per 1,000 Square Feet Diluting Dry Formulations:  Diluting Dry Formulations Pounds of Active Ingredient (a.i.) per Acre Diluting Dry Formulations:  Diluting Dry Formulations Percent of Active Ingredient in Tank Diluting Liquid Formulations:  Diluting Liquid Formulations Pints/Quarts/Gallons Per 100 Gallons Diluting Liquid Formulations:  Diluting Liquid Formulations Pints/Quarts/Gallons of Formulation per Acre Diluting Liquid Formulations:  Diluting Liquid Formulations Pints/Quarts of Formulation per 1,000 Square Feet Diluting Liquid Formulations:  Diluting Liquid Formulations Pounds of Active Ingredient per Acre Diluting Liquid Formulations:  Diluting Liquid Formulations Percentage of Active Ingredient in Tank Diluting Liquid Formulations:  Diluting Liquid Formulations Mixing Concentrates for Airblast Sprayers or Mist Blowers Pounds/gallons of formulation per tank x concentration factor equals Pounds/gallons formulation per tank in concentrate form Example: Diluting Liquid Formulations:  Diluting Liquid Formulations Converting Between Square Feet and Acres Calculating Size of Target Sites:  Calculating Size of Target Sites Regularly Shaped Sites - Rectangles Calculating Size of Target Sites:  Calculating Size of Target Sites Regularly Shaped Sites - Circles Calculating Size of Target Sites:  Calculating Size of Target Sites Regularly Shaped Sites - Triangles Area equals W x H 2 Calculating Size of Target Sites:  Irregularly Shaped Sites Area equals (W x H divided by 2) + (L1 x W1) + (L2 x W2) Calculating Size of Target Sites Calculating Size of Target Site:  Calculating Size of Target Site Take an irregularly shaped site and reduce it into combinations of shapes- rectangles, circles, triangles. Calculate the area of each and add them together for total area. What shapes do you see in this figure? Calculating Size of Target Sites:  Calculating Size of Target Sites Volume of Enclosed Spaces - Spaces Shaped like Cubes or Boxes Calculating Size of Target Sites:  Calculating Size of Target Sites Volume of Enclosed Spaces - Spaces Shaped like Cylinders Calculating Size of Target Sites:  Calculating Size of Target Sites Volume of Enclosed Spaces - Tent Shaped Spaces Calculating Size of Target Sites:  Calculating Size of Target Sites Volume of Enclosed Spaces - Flat-topped Tent-shaped Spaces Calculating Size of Target Sites:  Calculating Size of Target Sites Volume of Enclosed Spaces - Quonset-style Structures In Conclusion:  In Conclusion Know sprayer capacity Calibrate equipment Correctly measure site Know the application rate Use the formulas Use common sense!
