Acetochlor Molecular Formula
Synonyms: 2-Chloro-2'-methyl-6'-ethyl-N-ethoxymethyl; Harness; 2-Chloro-N-(ethoxymethyl)-N-(2-ethyl-6-methylphenyl)acetamide; 2-Chloro-2'-methyl-6'-ethyl-N-ethoxymethyl-acetanilide; Acenit; MON-097; Top Hand; Topnotc
It is a member of the class of herbicides known as chloroacetanilides. Its mode of action is elongase inhibition, and inhibition of geranylgeranyl pyrophosphate (GGPP) cyclisation enzymes, part of the gibberellin pathway. It carries high risks of environmental contamination.

Invalid perennial weed.
The product is selective upland preemergence herbicides, in the soil to effect for more than 8 weeks, an application can control the crop growth period without weeds. Can be used for peanuts, corn, soybeans, cotton, rapeseed, sesame, potato, sugarcane, sunflower, orchard and legume, Brassicaceae, Solanaceae, Compositae and Apiaceae variety of vegetable field control annual gramineous weeds. Invalid perennial weed.
It is pre emergence herbicide, control of annual gramineous weeds and some annual broadleaf weeds, apply to corn, cotton, peanuts, and soybean field weeding. It is homologuated for pre-emergence application or for pre-planting application with soil incorporation, in corn. (maize) at 5 litres / hectare (1835g / hectare of a.i.) It's the main active ingredient in Acenit, Keystone, Guardian, Harness, Relay, Sacemid, Surpass, Top-Hand, Trophy and Winner.
It is used to control weeds in corn, and is particularly useful as a replacement for atrazine in the case of some important weeds.
Acetochlor has been classified as a probable human carcinogen. Acetochlor, as Alachlor, can cause nasal turbinate tumors via the generation of a common tissue reactive metabolite that leads to cytotoxicity and regenerative proliferation in the nasal epithelium.
It's also a well-established thyroid disruptor
Human health effects from acetochlor at low environmental doses or at biomonitored levels from low environmental exposures are unknown.
In the US Acetochlor is the third most frequently detected herbicide in natural waters
Acetochlor can accelerate metamorphosis in amphibians. It can also affect the development of fish
