Additional Information:

Sometimes you just have to do the math! And this class will help make your math problems more painless and error-free. Anyone who measures, mixes or calibrates pesticides or fertilizers needs to do the mathematical gymnastics of calculating and converting. Conversions like: acres into square footage (application area) , pounds or ounces of material (chemical amount) to amount of active ingredient (percentage active ingredient), ounces per second into gallons per minute (flow rates) feet per second into MPH (speed of applicator.) Thatís a lot of math and a lot of margin for error for one application, and one mistake at any stage could turn an emerald green lawn into a barren, burned out eyesore. Not to mention the cost in time and money from inaccurate applications.
