Since I almost exclusively use a boomless.
I generally make two passes
One each direction

My thinking is your max rate on the GNHL is around 2 pints/ ac. You put out 4 gallons water per acre. Run one way mixed at 1pt and then from a different direction mixed at 1pt. It will get you to the 2pts and 8 gallons of water. I'd run them back to back.

At what speed was the the 4 gallons per acre? You should be able to slow down and get more.

I bought a small rig for what I need...40 gallon..grazon or weedmaster is the rec product..so how do I arrive at the corrct application rate..i can get ground speed but the gear chart on the tractor but how about the sprayer settings?
either look up charts, or just fill it with water and see how long it takes to empty at a given pressure, do the math from there for how much ground you need to cover.. Swath width and MPH
