Conversion Table for Sprays & Fertilizers

Suzy Hartford

Hort Minute from Ann Jackson*

It seems to me that all manufacturers of sprays, liquid fertilizers, and the like, think all gardeners have tremendous acreage. The poor soul who has only a sliver of ground and needs only a cupful of spray is hard put to get it right when the label gives dilution directions for gallons. Here’s a conversion table you ought to frame.

 

 

Dilution Required                   Per gallon of Water               Per Quart of Water

1 part to 1000 parts               ¾ teaspoon                             3 drops

1 part to 750 parts                  1 teaspoon                              ¼ teaspoon

1 part to 250 parts                  1 Tablespoon                         ¾ teaspoon

1 part to 100 parts (1%)          2 ½ Tablespoons                   1 ¾ teaspoons

1 part to 50 parts   (2%)         5 Tablespoons                        3 ¼ teaspoons

1 part to 25 parts   (4%)         10 Tablespoons                      2 ½ teaspoons

1 part to 20 parts  (20%)        ¾ cup                                      3 Tablespoons

1 part to 10 parts  (10%)          1 ½ cups                                 6 ¼ teaspoons

1 part to 5 parts     (20%)        3 cups + 3 Tablespoons        ¾ cup + 2 T.
