    In the Midwest all farm supply dealers sell it to use in conjunction with pesticides. Should be available in any farming area.

    I agree with Lobo, keep shopping around. Call some farm fertlizer and chemical dealers. You can get it in 2 1/2 gallon jugs. By the way ...what you going to use the crop oil for????

    If you're using it as a wetting agent for something like lawn chemicals, just substitute some Dawn dish washing soap. It'll do the same thing (and smell better). I use about a cup full in a 25 gal sprayer.

    Dawn does work fairly well as a wetting agent, not so mucha surfactant to break down the protectant on the leaves. I do recommend it to homeowners though. It doesn't work so well in mechanically or pump agitated machines as they'll start to call you "Mr. Bubble" LOL!

    If using it for shot making that is some nasty stuff. Used it some years ago and would stick my finger in the overflow to check temperature. As we were making shot I started reading the lable and never again. Use low tox anti freeze and you will be much happier and safer.
