Surround WP with hose-end sprayer

Hey all,
Anyone know what the mixture ratio should be if i dumped alot of Surround WP in a hose-end sprayer... then put mild/hot water to mix. and use a setting on a hose-end sprayer.
Like I need to know something like 'dump 3 cups of Surround WP in the hose-end sprayer's container. put in 8 cups of hot water. and put the dial setting on the hose-end sprayer to 1.5 fluid ounces per gallon'

Only see instructions for those 1 to 2 gallon sprayers that you premix and carry with you.

Hose-end would be more convenient for me also because the Community Garden won't question its organicness (its Kaolin Clay, but can imagine questions being arised if i used a 2gallon sprayer vs the usual hose-end sprayer i use for Fish Fertilizer spraying that they know about).

Surround can't effectively be applied with a hose-end sprayer. The community garden should be able to understand that a 1-2 gallon sprayer is no different than a hose sprayer - you can put organic or non-organic materials in both.
