Many pesticide labels contain rate recommendations in units that are not readily pertinent to container nursery production situations.

A program is presented, in the RPN programming language, for the conversion of pesticide rate terms from lb per ft2 to grams per container: f LBL A, RCL 2, ENTER, 1, 4, 4, X, STO 5, RCL 3, ENTER, 2, ENTER, g X2, f, X, STO 4, RCL 1, 4, 5, 3, ·, 9, X, STO 9, RCL 9, ENTER, RCL 9, ENTER, RCL 4, X, RCL 5,, g RTN.

Use of this program allows precise conversions of agricultural chemical application rates for container grown horticultural crops.
