Observe all precautions and restrictions on the labels of each product used in tank mixtures. Tank mixtures are permitted only in those states where the tank mix partner is registered. Follow the most restrictive of the labeling limitations and precautions of all products used in mixtures.
VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE is a selective herbicide that can be applied as a preplant surface-applied, preplant incorporated, preemergence, or postemergence treatment for control of most annual grasses and certain broadleaf weeds in corn (all types); cotton; grasses grown for seed; peanuts; beans, peas, and lentils; potatoes; safflowers; sugar beets; sunflowers; grain or forage sorghum; soybeans; soybean, immature seed; and tomatoes.
Use Site Restriction: Do not use in nurseries, turf, or landscape plantings.
Do not apply under conditions which favor runoff or wind erosion of soil containing this product to nontarget areas.
To prevent off-site movement due to runoff or wind erosion:
- Avoid treating powdery dry or light sand soils when conditions are favorable for wind erosion. Under these conditions, settle the soil surface first by rainfall or irrigation.
- Do not apply to impervious substrates, such as paved or highly compacted surfaces.
- Do not use tailwater from the first flood or furrow irrigation of treated fields to treat nontarget crops, unless at least 1/2 inch of rainfall has occurred between application and the first irrigation.
Where directions specify a VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE tank mixture with AAtrex formulations, other brands of atrazine may be used. Follow all use rates and other use restrictions on the AAtrex or respective atrazine product label if other brands of atrazine are used.
Note: Certain states may have established rate limitations for atrazine within specific geographical areas. Consult your state lead pesticide control agency for additional information. It is a violation of this label to deviate from state use regulations.
Precaution: Injury may occur following the use of VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE under abnormally high soil moisture conditions during early development of the crop.
Where rates are based on coarse-, medium-, or fine-textured soils, it is understood that soil textural classes.
COARSE: Sand, Loamy sand, Sandy loam
MEDIUM: Loam, Silt loam, Silt
FINE: Sandy clay loam, Silty clay loam, Clay loam, Sandy clay, Silty clay, Clay
Within rate ranges in the rate tables and elsewhere on this label, use the lower rate on soils relatively coarse-textured or low in organic matter; use the higher rate on soils relatively fine-textured or high in organic matter.
VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE may be applied preemergence alone, or in combination with tank mix partners specified on this label, following preplant incorporated herbicides when used according to their label use directions and restrictions, provided that such use is not prohibited on the respective labels.
Thoroughly clean sprayer or other application device before using. Dispose of cleaning solution in a responsible manner. Do not use a sprayer or applicator contaminated with any other materials, or crop damage or clogging of the application device may result.
VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE APPLIED ALONE
VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE is taken up by the shoots and/or roots of emerging weeds. This uptake results in the inhibition of shoot and root tissue growth soon after weed germination.
Because of this, VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE will not control emerged weeds. Control weeds that are present by another means, e.g., mechanical means or by another herbicide.
If VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE is incorporated, do not exceed a 2-3 inch depth. Any tillage after the VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE incorporation and before planting may not exceed 2-3 inches, or the depth of incorporation.
Dry weather following application of VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE may reduce weed control. Cultivate if weeds develop.
Where reference is made to weeds partially controlled, partial control can either mean erratic control from good to poor, or consistent control at a level below that generally considered acceptable for commercial weed control. Control of these weeds can be erratic, due partially to variable weather conditions. The following procedures may improve the control of weeds listed as partially controlled in Table 1:
- Thoroughly till soil to destroy germinating and emerged weeds.
- Plant crop into moist soil immediately after tillage. If VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE is to be used preemergence, apply at planting or immediately after planting.
- If available, sprinkler irrigate within 2 days after application. Apply 1/2-1 inch of water. Use lower water volume (1/2 inch) on coarse-textured soils and higher volume (1 inch) on fine-textured soils. Also, refer to the section on Center Pivot Irrigation Application for this method of applying VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE.
- If irrigation is not possible and rain does not occur within 2 days after planting and application, weed control may be decreased. Under these conditions, make a uniform, shallow cultivation as soon as weeds emerge.
WEED RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT
For resistance management, VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE is a Group 15 herbicide. Any weed population may contain or develop plants naturally resistant to VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE and other Group 15 herbicides. Weed species with acquired resistance to Group 15 herbicides may eventually dominate the weed population if Group 15 herbicides are used repeatedly in the same field or in successive years as the primary method of control for targeted species. This may result in partial or total loss of control of those species by VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE or other Group 15 herbicides. Users should scout before and after application.
Suspected herbicide-resistant weeds may be identified by these indicators:
- Failure to control a weed species normally controlled by the herbicide at the dose applied, especially if control is achieved on adjacent weeds;
- A spreading patch of non-controlled plants of a particular weed species; and
- Surviving plants mixed with controlled individuals of the same species.
To delay herbicide resistance:
- Avoid the consecutive use of VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE or other target site of action Group 15 herbicides that might have a similar target site of action, on the same weed species.
- Use tank mixtures or premixes with herbicides from different target site of action Groups as long as the involved products are all registered for the same use, have different sites of action and are both effective at the tank mix or prepack rate on the weed(s) of concern (an herbicide mode of action classification by itself may not adequately address specific weeds that are resistant to specific herbicides)
- Base herbicide use on a comprehensive Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program.
- Scout fields prior to application to identify the weed species present and their growth state to determine if the intended application will be effective.
- Scout fields after application to verify that the treatment was effective.
- Contact your local extension specialist, certified crop advisors and/or manufacturer for herbicide resistance management and/or integrated weed management recommendations for specific crops and resistant weed biotypes.
Report any incidence of non-performance of this product against a particular weed species to your INNVICTIS CROP CARE, LLC retailer, representative or call 855-466-8428. If resistance is suspected, treat weed escapes with an herbicide having a different mechanism of action and/or use non-chemicals means to remove escapes, as practical, with the goal of preventing further seed production.
PREPLANT AND ROTATIONAL CROPS SECTION
Replanted Crop Directions:
This section covers replant crops that may be planted following a lost crop that has had an application of VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE.
If a crop treated with VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE is lost, any crop on this label, or on a supplemental VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE label, may be replanted immediately provided that the rate of VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE applied to the previous crop was not greater than the labeled rate for the crop to be replanted. If the first application was banded and the replant crop is planted in the center of the untreated bands, a second banded treatment may be applied at the rate for the use-pattern for the replant crop, provided the application does not overlap the first application band.

VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE alone or in tank mixtures with other labeled herbicides may be applied for weed control in certain crops at various times. Refer to the crop-specific use directions section of the label to determine which of the following application timings listed below are allowed.
Preplant Surface-Applied: For minimum-tillage or no-tillage systems only, VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE alone and some VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE tank mixtures may be applied up to 45 days before planting certain crops. Use only split applications for treatments made 30-45 days before planting, with 2/3 the listed broadcast rate for the crop and soil texture applied initially and the remaining 1/3 at planting. Treatments less than 30 days before planting may be made either as a split or a single application. Refer to individual crop-specific use directions section on this label to determine if early preplant surface application may be made for that crop. If weeds are present at the time of treatment, apply in a tank mixture combination with a contact herbicide (for example, Gramoxone brands, Touchdown brands, or Roundup brands). Observe directions for use, precautions, and restrictions on the label of the contact herbicide. To the extent possible, do not move treated soil out of the row or move untreated soil to the surface during planting, or weed control will be diminished.
Preplant Incorporated: Apply VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE to the soil and incorporate into the top 2 inches of soil within 14 days before planting, using a finishing disk, harrow, rolling cultivator, or similar implement capable of providing uniform 2-inch incorporation. Use a preplant incorporated application if furrow irrigation is used or when a period of dry weather after application is expected. If crop will be planted on beds, apply and incorporate VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE after bed formation, unless specified otherwise.
Preemergence: Apply VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE during planting (behind the planter) or after planting, but before weeds or crops emerge.
Postemergence: VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE will not control emerged weeds. Control weeds that are present by another means, e.g., mechanical means or by another herbicide.
SPECIAL APPLICATION PROCEDURES
CA Only (Corn; Safflowers; Beans, Peas, and Lentils):
Preplant Incorporated: Broadcast VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE alone or with tank mix partners listed on this label to the soil and thoroughly incorporate with a disk or similar implement set to till 4-6 inches deep. For more thorough incorporation, till the soil in 2 different directions (cross-till). Crops may be planted on flat surface or on beds. Use caution when forming the beds to ensure that only soil from the VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE treated zone is used (i.e., do not bring untreated soil to soil surface). If the application is made to preformed beds, incorporate VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE with a tillage implement set to till 2-4 inches deep. Use care during tilling to keep the tilled (VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE treated) soil on the beds.
Preemergence: Apply VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE after planting. Water with sprinkler or flood irrigation within 7-10 days. Fall Application for Spring Weed Control (Only in IA, MN, ND, SD, WI, and portions of NE and IL - See specific instructions in the Corn; Soybeans; and Beans, Peas, and Lentils sections of this label for timing of application and other information): Use on medium and fine soils with greater than 2.5% organic matter that will be planted to corn or soybeans the next spring. Ground may be tilled before or after application. Do not exceed a 2 to 3-inch incorporation depth if tilled after treatment.
1. Do not apply VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE to frozen ground.
2. If a spring application is made, the total rate of the fall plus spring applications must not exceed the maximum total rate for the specific crop planted.
Fall Application for Italian Ryegrass Control (Corn, Cotton, Grain and Forage Sorghum, and Soybean Only – See specific instructions in the Corn, Cotton, Grain and Forage Sorghum, and Soybean sections of this label for timing of application and other information): VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE may be applied in the fall (September 1-December 1) for residual control of glyphosate-resistant Italian ryegrass (Lolium multiflorum). A tillage operation may precede the application. Do not incorporate to a depth greater than 2-3 inches if tillage follows the application of VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE. All crops on the VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE label may be planted the following spring after application. Refer to the crop sections on this label for specific directions.
1. Do not apply VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE to frozen ground.
2. If a spring application is made, the combined total amount of VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE applied in the fall plus the spring must not exceed the maximum seasonal S-metolachlor rate for the specific crop planted.
Apply VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE alone or in tank mixtures by ground equipment in a minimum of 10 gals. of spray mixture per acre, unless otherwise specified.
Use sprayers that provide accurate and uniform application. For VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE tank mixtures with wettable powder or dry flowable formulations, use screens and strainers no finer than 50-mesh. Rinse sprayer thoroughly with clean water immediately after use.
For information on applying in lower volumes of carrier, see Low Carrier Application section.
For application by air or through center pivot systems, see Aerial Drift Management and Aerial Drift Reduction Advisory Information sections.
For information on impregnating dry fertilizer, see Dry Bulk Granular Fertilizers section.
For information on application using variable-rate technologies, see Variable-Rate Application section.
LOW CARRIER APPLICATION
For Broadcast Ground Application Only:
Use sprayers, such as Ag-Chem RoGator, Hagie, John Deere Hi-Cycle™, Melroe Spra-Coupe, Tyler Patriot™, or Willmar Air Ride, that provide accurate and uniform application.
Only water may be used as a carrier. Use screens in suction and in-line strainers that are 50-mesh. Manufacturers may require that tip screens as fine as 100-mesh be used with some nozzles. Use a pump with capacity to: (1) maintain up to 35-40 psi at the nozzles, and (2) provide sufficient agitation in tank to keep mixture in suspension. Use a minimum of 5.0 gal of spray mixture per acre. To achieve best results, apply at a maximum sprayer speed of 15 mph. Rinse sprayer thoroughly with clean water immediately after each use.
Note: Low pressure nozzles will reduce drift and increase application accuracy. Use care when using automatic rate controlling devices to spray the material within the rated working pressure and flow ranges of the nozzles selected. Use nozzle screens when instructed by the manufacturer. Place all nozzles on 20-inch centers, except flooding types. Place flooding type nozzles on 40-inch centers. When Flat Fan-type nozzles are used, use angles of 80° or 110°. Always read and follow the manufacturer’s directions for optimum setup and performance of their nozzles or tips.
Apply VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE in water alone or in tank mixtures with AAtrex, Lorox, or TriCor in a minimum total volume of 2.0 gal/A by aircraft. VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE may also be applied by air in combination with Balan, Prowl, or Treflan. Avoid application under conditions where uniform coverage cannot be obtained or where excessive spray drift may occur. In order to assure that spray will be controllable within the target area when used according to label directions, make applications at a maximum height of 10 ft, using low-drift nozzles at a maximum pressure of 40 psi, and restrict application to periods when wind speed does not exceed 10 mph. To assure that spray will not adversely affect adjacent sensitive nontarget plants, apply VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE alone or VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE + AAtrex by aircraft at a minimum upwind distance of 400 ft from sensitive plants, or apply VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE, Lorox, or TriCor at a minimum upwind distance of 300 ft from sensitive plants.
CENTER PIVOT IRRIGATION APPLICATION
VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE alone or in tank mixture with other herbicides on this label, which are registered for center pivot application, may be applied in irrigation water preemergence (after planting, but before weeds or crop emerge) at rates listed on this label. VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE also may be applied postemergence to the crop and preemergence to weeds in crops where postemergence applications are allowed on this label. Follow all restrictions (height, timing, rate, etc.) to avoid illegal residues. Apply this product only through a center pivot irrigation system. Do not apply this product through any other type of irrigation system. Crop injury, lack of effectiveness, or illegal pesticide residues in the crop can result from nonuniform distribution of treated water. If you have questions about calibration, contact State Extension specialists, equipment manufacturers, or other experts. Do not connect an irrigation system (including greenhouse systems) used for pesticide application to a public water system, unless the pesticide label-prescribed safety devices for public water systems are in place. A person knowledgeable of the chemigation system and responsible for its operation, or under the supervision of the responsible person, shall shut the system down and make necessary adjustments when needed.
1. The system must contain a functional check-valve, vacuum relief valve, and low pressure drain appropriately located on the irrigation pipeline to prevent watersource contamination from backflow.
2. The pesticide injection pipeline must contain a functional, automatic, quick-closing check-valve to prevent the flow of fluid back toward the injection pump.
3. The pesticide injection pipeline must also contain a functional, normally closed, solenoid-operated valve located on the intake side of the injection pump and connected to the system interlock to prevent fluid from being withdrawn from the supply tank when the irrigation system is either automatically or manually shut down.
4. The system must contain functional interlocking controls to automatically shut off the pesticide injection pump when the water pump motor stops.
5. The irrigation line or water pump must include a functional pressure switch which will stop the water pump motor when the water pressure decreases to the point where pesticide distribution is adversely affected.
6. Systems must use a metering pump, such as a positive displacement injection pump (e.g., diaphragm pump or piston pump), effectively designed and constructed of materials that are compatible with pesticides and capable of being fitted with a system interlock.
7. Do not apply when wind speed favors drift beyond the area intended for treatment.
8. Prepare a mixture with a minimum of 1 part water to 1 part herbicide(s) and inject this mixture into the center pivot system. Injecting a larger volume of a more dilute mixture per hour will usually provide more accurate calibration of metering equipment. Maintain sufficient agitation to keep the herbicide in suspension.
9. Meter into irrigation water during entire period of water application.
10. Apply in 1/2-1 inch of water. Use the lower water volume (1/2 inch) on coarse-textured soils and the higher volume (1 inch) on fine-textured soils. More than 1 inch of water at application may reduce weed control by moving the herbicide below the effective zone in the soil.
Precaution for center pivot applications: Where sprinkler distribution patterns do not overlap sufficiently, unacceptable weed control may result. Where sprinkler distribution patterns overlap excessively, crop injury may result.
DRY BULK GRANULAR FERTILIZERS
Many dry bulk granular fertilizers may be impregnated or coated with VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE alone or selected VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE tank mixtures which are registered for preplant incorporated or preplant surface applications which are used to control weeds in crops on the VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE label and are not prohibited from use on dry bulk granular fertilizers.
When applying VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE or VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE mixtures with dry bulk granular fertilizers, follow all directions for use, restrictions and precautions on the respective product labels, regarding target crops, rates per acre, soil texture, application methods (including timing of application), and rotational crops.
All individual state regulations relating to dry bulk granular fertilizers blending, registration, labeling, and application are the responsibility of the individual and/or company selling the herbicide/fertilizer mixture. Prepare the herbicide/fertilizer mixtures by using any closed drum, belt, ribbon, or other commonly used dry bulk fertilizer blender. Nozzles used to spray VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE and VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE mixtures onto the fertilizer must be placed to provide uniform spray coverage. Use care to aim the spray directly onto the fertilizer only and to avoid spraying the walls of the blender. If the herbicide/fertilizer mixture is too wet, add a highly absorptive material, such as Agsorb or Celatom MP-79, or similar granular clay or diatomaceous earth materials, to obtain a dry, free-flowing mixture. Add absorptive materials only after the herbicide has been thoroughly blended into the fertilizer mixture. Best application results will be obtained by using a granule of 6/30 particle size or of a size similar to that of the fertilizer material being used. Generally, less than 2% by weight of absorptive material will be needed. Avoid using more than 5% absorptive material by weight.
Pneumatic (Compressed Air) Application (VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE Alone): High humidity, high urea concentrations, low fertilizer use rates, and dusty fertilizer may cause fertilizer mixture to build up or plug the distributor head, air tubes, or nozzle deflector plates. To minimize buildup, premix VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE with Exxon Aromatic 200 at a rate of 1.0-4.0 pts./gals. of VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE. Aromatic 200 is a noncombustible/ nonflammable petroleum product. Aromatic 200 may be used in either a fertilizer blender or through direct injection systems. Avoid drying agents when using Aromatic 200.
1. Use mixtures of VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE and Aromatic 200 must be used on dry fertilizer only. Poor results or crop injury may result if these mixtures are used in water or liquid fertilizer solutions for spraying applications.
2. When impregnating VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE in a blender before application, a drier mixture can be attained by substituting a drying agent for Aromatic 200. Agsorb FG or drying agents of 6/30 particle size will provide best results.
3. When possible, avoid drying agents when using On-The-Go impregnation equipment.
Precautions: To avoid potential for explosion:
1. Do not impregnate VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE or VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE mixtures on ammonium nitrate, potassium nitrate, or sodium nitrate, either alone or in blends with other fertilizers.
2. Do not use VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE or VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE mixtures on straight limestone, since absorption will not be achieved. Fertilizer blends containing limestone can be impregnated.
Apply 200-700 lbs. of the herbicide/fertilizer mixture per acre. For best results, apply the mixture uniformly to the soil with properly calibrated equipment immediately after blending. Uniform application of the herbicide/fertilizer mixture is essential to prevent possible crop injury. Nonuniform application may also result in unsatisfactory weed control. In areas where conventional tillage is practiced, a shallow incorporation of the mixture into the soil may improve weed control. On fine- or medium-textured soils in areas where soil incorporation is not planned, i.e., reduced tillage situations or in some conventional till situations, make applications approximately 30 days before planting to allow moisture to move the herbicide/fertilizer mixture into the soil. On coarse-textured soils, make applications approximately 14 days prior to planting.
Precaution: To avoid crop injury, do not use the herbicide/fertilizer mixture on crops where bedding occurs.
TOMATOES- VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE ALONE
VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE may be applied preplant incorporated or preplant before transplanting. If the latter method is used, keep soil disturbance to a minimum during the transplanting operation. Application may also be made post-directed to transplants after the first settling rain or irrigation. When an application is made post-directed, apply in a minimum of 20 gallons of water per acre and minimize contact with tomato plants. VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE will not control emerged weeds. In bedded transplanted tomatoes, apply VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE preplant non-incorporated to the top of the pressed bed, as the last step, prior to laying plastic. VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE may also be used to treat row-middles in bedded tomatoes, as long as the total amount of VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE does not exceed the maximum allowed per crop.
VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE may be applied post-directed to direct seeded tomatoes. Tomato plants must be at least 4 inches tall at the time of application and the product must be applied in a minimum of 20 gallons of water per acre. Minimize spray contact with tomato plants. VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE will not control emerged weeds.
1. Application to varieties or cultivars with unknown tolerance to VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE may result in crop injury.
2. VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE may damage transplants that have been weakened by any cause. To prevent damage, plant only healthy transplants and avoid planting when wet, cool, or unfavorable growing conditions exist.
3. In transplanted tomatoes, if VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE is applied preplant incorporated, incorporate to a depth less than the depth of transplanting, and use the lower end of the rate range for the given soil type, or damage may occur.
4. For row middle applications where tomatoes are grown on sandy soils and where high soil moisture conditions can exist (e.g., low binding and high evaporation conditions), as may be found in the States of Florida, Georgia, Maryland, and Virginia, there is potential for crop injury in the form of leaf epinasty. The risk of this type of injury can be reduced by:
a. incorporating the VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE immediately following application,
b. applying the VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE seven or more days before transplanting (but only after the beds have been formed),
c. minimizing the application of VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE onto the plastic of the bed, or d. any combination of the above.
Do not exceed the maximum label rate for the soil texture per year. Apply only by ground application.
90 Day PHI - If the single application rate of VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE is greater than 1.33 pt/A per year (up to 2.0 pt/A per year) do not harvest tomatoes within 90 days of application.
30 Day PHI - If the application rate of VISOR S-MOC HERBICIDE does not exceed 1.33 pt/A per year, do not harvest tomatoes within 30 days of application.
When applying at 1.33 pt/A per year with a 30 day PHI, the following restrictions apply:
- Do not exceed two applications per growing season.
- The use of adjuvants is prohibited.
- Applications may be made using ground equipment, in concentrated spray volumes.
Applications may be made as a foliar broadcast spray to the soil within a week of transplanting and again at blooming/fruiting to the row middles as a banded/directed application 38-77 days after the first treatment.
