one quart of sprayable granulated ammonium sulfate per acre.

1.7 oz per gallon - depends on how much water you use.

8.5 to 17 lbs per 100 gallons of water. For a 25 gallon tank 2 to 4 lbs. If your water is very hard, lean toward the 4 lbs. You do not have to be precise.

Are there any negative affects if you use to much?

A couple of interesting quick reads about AMS:

AMS can also be broadcast as a fertilizer, for Nitrogen and a source of Sulfer. AMS is also sometimes used as part of a starter fetilizer mix. Most herbicides are acidic, the AMS just makes the tank mix slightly more acidic.

Well that's good to know. I didn't calculate right and ended up putting 4lbs. in 4 gal. of water and didn't realize it till it was already mixed up. That's what I get for hurrying, lol. Thanks!
