Acetochlor Changes Ease Use

Acetochlor Changes Ease Use

Retailers and their grower-customers will experience more use convenience and cropping flexibility with acetochlor products from Dow AgroSciences due to recent label revisions approved by EPA.


The label updates include the addition of acetochlor use on sweet corn, the lifting of restricted use pesticide (RUP) limitations, and a relaxation of crop rotational restrictions.

Surpass, Keystone, Keystone LA, Fultime, and Topnotch herbicides are now labeled for use on sweet corn.

Surestart, Surpass, and Topnotch herbicides are no longer RUPs and licensed applicator restrictions have been removed from the product labels. Rotational crop restrictions also have been relaxed for numerous crops on the Surestart, Surpass, and Topnotch product labels, giving growers greater crop rotational flexibility.
