I have been reading several posts about Quicksilver and would like to know where to get some. I know FMC makes it but i looked around on the net and couldnt find anything. Would like to try it out. Also been having trouble finding confront. I did find it in 40lbs bag of granular at one site but I am looking for a liquid if possible.
Any info here would be greatly appreciated..

Man, that's costly! What is the label rate per thousand?

The 8 oz bottle comes with eyedroppers for use in hand sprayers.
You use very very little product. I think FMC made a mistake by
making the active ingredient so concentrated. The glug glug theory of mixing will certainly cost you with this product.

It is proving to be a very effective herbicide. It will probably replace chlopyrilid and become the new wave of weed control!

Carfentrazone-ethyl(Quicksilver) is one of the active ingredients in Speedzone. Good stuff!!!

Quicksilver is some awesome stuff !!!! I used a tank mix of Riverdale Triplet at 3.5 pints per acre and 1 ounce, Yes only 1 ounce of Quicksilver per acre. It took out ground-ivy like nothing I have ever used before!!!!

Depending on where you are in Indiana, Lesco stores are

Indy: one north and one south

Fort Wayne

South Bend

If you're in Southern Indiana:

Two in Louisville

Three in Cincinnati area

Go to www.lesco.com and put in your zip code. It will give you
a list of phone #s to call.

By itself it is costly and somewhat ineffective. It must be tank mixed for best results.

Saw one good report in one of the previuous posts. Heard one story about burning up some turf but can not confirm. Just wondering if anybody has spot sprayed Virginia buttonweed with it. I have buttonweed all over the place this year and so far Quicksilver is only chemical I've seen with buttonweed on the label. It has basically laughed at Confront so far. Any ideas?

QuickSilver is awesome. Ground ivy, violets no problem. It's close to $500 out the door to buy a case of it (4- 8oz. bottles) but a 2-2 1/2 bottles lasts me the season in the power spreader. Highly recommended.

I have used quicksilver for two seasons now.

Pros:

1. Control Ivs, voilets, creeping charlies, field binweeds and the list goes on.
2. Extremely low usage 1 oz. per acre each bottle does 8 acres of spraying.
3. Fast burn down. I use it on weed control only customers with out of control yards. I get a lot of calls for just killing dandelions in the spring. I will do 2 pints of cool power and 1oz. of quicksilver and it will have the whole yard wilting next day and dead in a week. In later spring I will mix it with Mec Amine D from UAP which is the slowest killing stuff in the world and it does the same thing.

Cons:

You will pay anywhere from 115 to 140 a bottle depending on the supplier that is a cost of $15 an acre for just weed control which is supposed to be pretty cheap in my opinion.
