where to get Quicksilver weed control

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..

Just a pinch

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!

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!!!!
