The number of tablespoons per ounce, or cups per pound, of dry insecticides and fungicides varies greatly with different products because some materials are light and fluffy; others compact and heavy. In general, there are from 2 to 6 level tablespoons per ounce of these dry materials.
When a material is to be used repeatedly, it is much better to weigh out the amount needed and place it in some convenient container which can be easily marked. If this cannot be done, it is usually safe to assume that 1 lb per 100 gal is equal to 1 level Tbsp/gal. (For example, Sevin - 2 lb/100 gal = 2 Tbsp/gal.)
