UPL Offers INTERMOC Herbicide To U.S. Market


UPL is expanding the availability of INTERMOC Herbicide in the United States for the 2022 growing season. For growers who face persistent troublesome weeds, INTERMOC is a unique combination of contact and residual herbicides that is designed to be a component of a season-long weed control program.

“INTERMOC will let growers control existing weeds that are already up in the field in addition to a residual that extends weed control during the growing season,” says Tom Mudd, UPL Marketing Manager, Corn and Soybean Herbicides. “Growers will have the ability to use INTERMOC as a broadcast burndown application prior to crop emergence in labeled conventional row crops or as a post-emergent application in glufosinate-tolerant cotton and soybeans.”

INTERMOC combines two popular herbicides from UPL: INTERLINE and MOCCASIN. With active ingredients glufosinate and S-metolachlor, INTERMOC is approved for use on glufosinate-tolerant soybeans and cotton, including LibertyLink varieties. ­

“With glufosinate, INTERMOC performs as a contact herbicide to control weeds that are already pressuring the crop for water, sunlight and nutrients. The S-metolachlor component of INTERMOC provides a layered residual approach to control the weed seed bank throughout the season. INTERMOC is well positioned as an early post option following a strong pre-emergent herbicide application such as MOCCASIN MTZ or TRIPZIN ZC,” says Mudd.

There are application instructions on the label for over-the-top weed control across soybeans and cotton. This label is approved for the following key states – AL, AR, AZ, CO, CT, DE, FL, GA, IA, ID, IL, IN, KS, KY, LA, MA, MD, ME, MI, MN, MO, MS, MT, NC, ND, NE, NH, NJ, NY, OH, OK, OR, PA, RI, SC, SD, TN, TX, UT, VA, VT, WA, WV, WI, and WY.
