Based on current crop tolerances for acetochlor, the following crops are permissible in rotation following direct uses of products which contain acetochlor as the only active ingredient. For the allowable rotational crops on any particular product, including those which contain other active ingredients, read and follow all label directions for that product.

  • If a crop treated with an acetochlor containing product is lost, the following crops may be replanted immediately, but could result in crop injury: corn (all types), cotton, milo (sorghum), peanuts, soybeans, sugar beets, or non-food or non-feed winter cover crops.
    • When planting milo (sorghum) use only seed properly treated with seed protectant or safener.
    • Do not graze or harvest winter cover crops for food or animal feed for a minimum of 18 months following last application of this product or any other product containing acetochlor.
    • Do not exceed the annual maximum total of 3.0 pounds per acre of acetochlor active ingredient if additional acetochlor is applied.
  • Nongrass animal feeds such as alfalfa, clover, kudzu, lespedeza, lupin, sainfoin, trefoil, velvet bean, and Vetch spp. may be planted 9 months after application.
  • Wheat may be planted 4 months after application.
