Peel back the label and read it. ALL of it. It tells you how much water to use right there in the directions.

Do you have pH measuring test strips? If not, go buy some before using it. If you don't know the pH you are just throwing the Clipper away if the pH isn't in the range that it needs to be.

Cliff notes are 1) The water in the sprayer MUST BE between 5.0 and 7.0 pH, AND the water that you are spraying it on has to be less than 8.5pH. (Page 4 of the directions)

2) You must mix Clipper with a non-ionic surfactant that has at least 80% active ingredient. It tells you how much to use right there in the directions. (Page 4 of the directions)

3) You must use 30 gallons of water per surface acre when mixed with 6-12 ounces of Clipper. (Page 5 of the directions)

The PH is 6.7. Had the water tested at local water plant. What is non-ionic surfactant? We ordered Clipper but what we got Flumigard , it seems to have the same stuff in it. Maybe the directions are some what different.

BACKPACK APPLICATION

Example: Applicator wants to spray 1 gallon of this product solution per 1,000 square feet at a rate of 12 fl oz/Acre. Mix 0.27 fl oz (1.6 teaspoons or 8.1 mls) of this product in 1 gallon of water

You would use that 12 fl. oz in 43.56 gallons to cover that one acre........

That's from the Flumigard label (page 3). Also on that same page, For an application rate of 8 fl. oz. per acre you would use 0.18 fl. oz. in one gallon of water, or 8 ounces in 43.56 gallons of water to cover that acre.

Flumigard is the generic equivalent of Clipper.

I use Cygnet Plus for my non-ionic surfactant.

Langster, I know you have the herbicide now, but if you have to use something again in the future and you have underwater plants that you don't want to kill look at Stingray aquatic herbicide. It affects the following plants: Water-lettuce (Pistia stratiotes), Water-hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes), Salvinia (Salvinia minima, Salvinia molesta), Duckweed (Lemna spp.), Mosquito fern (Azolla caroliniana), Water spinach (Ipomoea aquatica), Watermeals (Wolffia spp.), Alligatorweed (Alternanthera philoxeroides), (Suppression), Water primrose (Ludwigia octovalvis) (Suppression).

13.5 fl. oz. per surface acre is the maximum application rate and that is to be mixed with between 20 and 200 gallons of water to get complete coverage. Again, use a non-ionic surfactant.
