Outlook Herbicide: A Simple Guide for Farmers Growing Soybeans, Corn, Cotton, and Various Crops

Outlook Herbicide

What is Outlook Herbicide

Outlook herbicide is a selective pre-emergent herbicide that can control various weeds, including annual grasses, annual broadleaf, and sedges. It can be used in multiple zones, areas, and different crop types.

Active Ingredient

The active ingredient in Outlook herbicide is dimethenamid-P.

The Outlook herbicide contains 6.0 pounds of dimethenamid-P per gallon.

Where to Use It

You can use Outlook herbicide for corn, beans, beets, garlic, horseradish, onions, peanuts, perennial grasses grown for seed, potatoes, shallots, sorghum, cotton, and soybeans.

Let’s explore each of them in more detail.

Beets (Sugar)

You can use Outlook herbicide on sugar beet crops to control undesired plants.

Normal timing:

It is recommended to apply Outlook on sugar beet crops when plants have reached the 2-leaf stage but before they exceed the 8-leaf stage. Applying it at the 2-leaf stage or later may cause temporary injuries to the sugar beet crops.

After herbicide application, you should not harvest the sprayed sugar beets for the next 60 days.

Extended timing:

If you were unable to apply the herbicide within the normal timing, you can still apply it when the sugar beets have reached the 9-leaf stage but have not yet exceeded the 12-leaf stage.

When applied during the extended timing, you should not harvest the sugar beets for the next 95 days after the herbicide application.


The maximum recommended rate of Outlook herbicide for sugar beet crops is 21 fluid ounces per acre.

For a single application, use a rate of 12 to 18 fluid ounces on coarse-texture soils and 18 to 21 fluid ounces on medium to fine-texture soils.

You can choose to apply the herbicide in one or two applications. If you opt for two applications, there should be a time window of 14 days between the two applications.

Dry bulb onions, garlic, and dry bulb shallots

You can utilize Outlook herbicide on onions like dry bulb onions, garlic, and dry bulb shallots to control unwanted weeds.

Normal timing:

In this case, you can apply the herbicide when the dry bulb onions, garlic, and dry bulb shallots have reached the 2 true-leaf stage, ensuring that there is a minimum of 30 days left until harvest.

Do not apply the herbicide before the plants reach the 2 true-leaf stage, as it may harm your crop. If the crops have been transplanted, avoid applying the herbicide until the transplants are well settled in the ground. It is better to wait for a few days before spraying the herbicide.


The maximum recommended ratio of Outlook herbicide for onion crops is 21 fluid ounces per acre.

If you choose to apply it in two applications, you can use 10 to 14 fluid ounces per acre in the first application and the remaining 7 to 10 fluid ounces per acre in the second application. The second application should occur 14 days after the first application.

For a single application, apply 12 to 18 fluid ounces on coarse-texture soils and 18 to 21 fluid ounces on medium to fine-texture soils.

Corn (Field, Pop, Seed, and Sweet)

Field corn is another crop in which you can use this herbicide. You can use Outlook herbicide on corn crops including corn grown for grain, silage, or seed, including sweet corn and popcorn.

The herbicide can be applied as a pre-plant surface, pre-plant incorporated, pre-emergent, or post-emergent treatment for corn that is up to 12 inches tall. It can be applied during the layby stage to field corn, seed corn, and popcorn. Layby applications should be made when the corn is taller than 12 inches but has not yet exceeded 36 inches.

Before applying the herbicide on corn, seed corn, sweet corn, or popcorn, it is important to confirm its selectivity on your specific inbred line or hybrid with your local seed company or supplier.


When conducting layby applications to control late-season germinating weeds, ensure the herbicide is applied before the weeds emerge from the soil. Alternatively, you can combine the herbicide with other weed control measures such as herbicides or cultivation to manage already emerged weeds.


The maximum recommended rate of Outlook herbicide for corn per acre is 21 fluid ounces.

The maximum rate for a single application on coarse-texture soils is 12 to 18 fluid ounces, while on medium or fine-texture soils, it is 18 to 21 fluid ounces.

The Outlook herbicide label specifies not to harvest sweet corn 50 days or more after application.

Dry Bean

Dry bean varieties such as small whites, navy, black turtle soup, pink, pinto, great northern, red Mexican, red kidney, and cranberry are suitable for use with Outlook herbicide.

It is important to note that Outlook should not be used on other types of beans such as succulent beans or cowpeas.

Outlook herbicide for dry beans can be applied as a pre-plant surface, pre-plant incorporated, pre-emergent, or early post-emergent treatment.


When using Outlook herbicide on dry beans, there are a few considerations to keep in mind.

If you use this selective herbicide after heavy rainfall or when the soil has become saturated, it may temporarily suppress the growth of dry beans. This disruption is not expected to impact the yield of dry edible beans.

Applied as an early post-emergent treatment, dry bean leaves may experience temporary injuries such as spotting or browning from Outlook herbicide.


The ratio of Outlook herbicide for dry beans is 12 to 18 fluid ounces for a single application or for use in coarse-textured soils. For medium or fine-textured soils, a single application of 18 to 21 fluid ounces is recommended.

If you prefer to make two applications, you can use 10 to 14 fluid ounces in the first application and the remaining 7 to 10 fluid ounces in the second application. No matter your preference, you must not exceed a maximum of 21 fluid ounces per acre per season.

After spraying Outlook herbicide on dry beans, the crops can be harvested after 70 days or more.

Green Onions

You can apply Outlook herbicide on green onions, including leeks, spring onions, scallions, Japanese bunching onions, green shallots, and eschalots.

When dealing with green onions grown in muck soils, high organic soils, or mineral soils, you can apply this herbicide as a broadcast (ground) application to effectively control weeds in all soil types.


It is essential to apply this herbicide to green onions when they have reached the 2 true-leaf stage, ensuring a minimum of 30 days before harvest. Applying the herbicide before this stage may harm and reduce the crop’s yield.

Be careful when using the herbicide on transplanted green onions. Apply it a few days after the transplants have been placed in the soil and have settled.


For a single application, the maximum recommended rate of Outlook herbicide for green onions is 21 fluid ounces per acre, which also represents the maximum per acre per growing season.

If making two consecutive applications, use 10 to 14 fluid ounces per acre for the first application and 7 to 10 fluid ounces for the second application. Maintain a 14-day interval between the two applications.

After applying the herbicide, you can safely harvest your green onions within 30 days following the last application.


Outlook herbicide is effective for peanuts as both a pre-emergent and post-emergent treatment. Specifically, for peanuts, higher rates of 16 to 21 fluid ounces per acre can be used to target more challenging weeds such as low nutsedge, Florida beggarweed, and eclipta.

When applying Outlook herbicide to peanuts, you can use 12 to 18 fluid ounces on coarse-texture soils and 18 to 21 fluid ounces on medium or fine-texture soils.


For a single application, the recommended rate of Outlook herbicide for peanuts is 21 fluid ounces per acre.

Alternatively, you can split the application into two doses, with the first application consisting of 10 to 14 fluid ounces and the second application using 7 to 10 fluid ounces. The maximum quantity per acre per season should not exceed 21 fluid ounces.


If you have livestock, it is important to note that they should not graze in the sprayed area for 80 days or more after application. Therefore, it is necessary to keep your animals out of that specific area.

Perennial Grasses Grown For Seed

Outlook is suitable for perennial grasses grown for seed, as indicated on the label.

The right application of the herbicide should occur either one year after planting the grass seed crops or after harvesting one seed crop.


The herbicide can be applied as a pre-emergent treatment to control weeds.

Restrictions and Ratio:

During the fall season, a pre-emergent treatment of 14 to 21 fluid ounces per acre can be applied. In cases of dense infestations or challenging weed control situations, higher rates can be used if necessary.

After application, it is crucial for the product to be transported to the upper soil surface through rainfall or sprinkler irrigation before weed emergence. It is recommended to apply the herbicide under optimal temperature conditions. Extreme cold or hot temperatures during application can result in harm to the crop from the herbicide.

Potato, Horseradish

Outlook herbicide can be applied to potatoes as a pre-emergent treatment. For horseradish, it can be applied as a post-emergent treatment when the plants reach the 2-leaf stage to the 8-leaf stage of growth.

For both potatoes and horseradish, it is recommended to apply this herbicide in a single application under optimal weather conditions. Extreme temperatures, whether too cold or hot, can have negative effects on your crops when applying the herbicide.


The maximum recommended application rate of Outlook herbicide for potatoes and horseradish is 21 fluid ounces.

However, it is advisable to use 18 to 21 fluid ounces for medium or fine-texture soils and 12 to 18 fluid ounces for coarse-texture soils.

Sorghum (Grain)

Outlook herbicide on sorghum works really well too. It can be used for grain sorghum but not for sweet or forage sorghum.

You have the option to use it as a pre-plant surface treatment, pre-plant incorporated treatment, pre-emergent, or post-emergent treatment until the sorghum crop reaches a height of 12 inches. You can choose to apply it in a single application or divide it into multiple applications.

When applied to sorghum under conditions of high soil moisture or cool temperatures, temporary injuries due to Outlook herbicide can be observed such as stunting or leaf wrapping. It is important to note that these Outlook herbicide injuries are temporary, and sorghum plants typically recover within 10-14 days, showing normal growth.


The maximum recommended rate for sorghum is 21 fluid ounces.

Livestock grazing can graze the sprayed area 60 days or more after application, and harvesting can be done 80 days or more after application.


Outlook herbicide for soybeans provides flexibility as it can be applied in different ways: pre-plant surface, pre-plant incorporated, pre-emergence, or in the early post-emergence stage (from the first to third trifoliate leaf stage). You can choose to apply it as a single application or split it into multiple applications.

When applying Outlook herbicide on soybean crops before planting, it is important to ensure proper mixing into the soil. The herbicide should be mixed well but not too deep. Ideally, it should be mixed into the top 1 to 2 inches of soil. Mixing it too deep may result in reduced effectiveness against weeds or potential harm to the crop.

Outlook herbicide injury on soybeans

In cases of heavy rainfall and water saturation in the soil during soybean germination and early seedling stages, the use of Outlook herbicide may result in injury to soybean crops and temporary growth suppression of the plants.

Other potential injuries from Outlook herbicide on soybeans, such as burn, can occur when the herbicide, spray adjuvants, and tank mixed herbicides are applied to emerged soybeans up to the unifoliate stage.


The recommended maximum application rates for Outlook herbicide in soybeans range from 12 to 21 fluid ounces, varying based on the soil type.

For coarse-texture soils, it is advised to use 12-18 fluid ounces in a single application. On the other hand, for medium- or fine-texture soils, the range is 18-21 fluid ounces. These rates may also be influenced by the organic matter content in the soil.


Outlook herbicide can be used for cotton crops as well. Actually, Outlook herbicide offers numerous benefits when used on cotton.

Here are some of the advantages of using Outlook herbicide on cotton:

  • Great Performance: Performance in controlling targeted weeds in cotton fields.
  • Application Flexibility: Outlook herbicide can be applied as a post-emergent treatment in cotton. It can be used from the first true leaf stage to the mid-bloom stage of the plants.
  • Long-Lasting Residual Effect: The herbicide has a long-lasting residual effect that provides extended control of weeds, reducing the need for frequent herbicide applications.


For an effective application, Outlook herbicide can be used as a very early post-emergent treatment when cotton plants reach the first true leaf to the 6-10 leaf stage.

It can also be used as an early post-emergent treatment up to two weeks after the first bloom.

Whatever you choose is fine as long as you do not apply the herbicide during the emergent through the cotyledon stage, as it can cause damage to the cotton crop.


The recommended application rate for Outlook herbicide on cotton varies depending on the timing of treatment. For very early treatment, the rate is 12 to 18 fluid ounces per acre, while for early treatment, the range is 12 to 19 fluid ounces.

How it works

Outlook herbicide works by preventing the growth of weeds by interfering with their entire system.

When it is sprayed, the plants absorb it through their leaves and roots. Once it enters the weed’s system, the active ingredient disrupts the normal functioning of the weed’s enzymes and proteins.

This disruption causes abnormal cell divisions and ultimately affects the weed’s growth and development.

Weeds controlled

Outlook can control a wide variety of broadleaf weeds such as Spurge, Amaranth, and Nightshade, but also annual grasses such as Bluegrass, Crabgrass, Johnsongrass, and many more.

Table 1. Weeds controlled by Outlook herbicide

See tank mix descriptions for the specified use rate ranges of other herbicides used with Outlook.

Mixing Instructions

The mixing instructions for Outlook herbicide must be followed to ensure that the correct final solution is prepared for use on your crops. Apart from these instructions, the herbicide also has a specific mixing order that you need to follow when preparing the solution.

Here is the recommended mixing order for Outlook herbicide:

  1. Water: Start by adding three-quarters of clean water into your sprayer tank.
  2. Agitation: Stir and agitate the solution constantly.
  3. Inductor: If you are using an inductor, rinse it after each component you add.
  4. Products in PVA bags: Add any water-soluble PVA bags to the mixing tank. Stir to ensure that all water-soluble PVA bags are dissolved properly.
  5. Water-dispersible products: Add wettable powders, suspension concentrates, or support-emulsions. Stir and agitate.
  6. Water-soluble products: Add water-soluble products and continue to agitate the solution.
  7. Emulsifiable concentrates: If you are using emulsifiable concentrates, add them at this stage.
  8. Water-soluble additives.
  9. Remaining quantity of water: Add the remaining water, agitate, and stir to ensure everything is dissolved.

According to the BASF Outlook label, the first step in mixing the herbicide should be to perform a compatibility test. In this test, you need to mix all the components in small amounts, cap the jar, agitate it, and wait for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, observe the solution and ensure that all components are compatible.

Signs of incompatibility include free oil on the surface of the solution, fine particles settling to the bottom, or a thick texture. If any of these signs are present, do not use the solution as it may not be effective or could cause harm.

Outlook herbicide and Additives

There are some adjuvants that can be used with Outlook herbicide to improve its effectiveness against emerged weeds.

Outlook herbicide can be used with surfactants for herbicides such as 28%, 30%, or 31% UAN (urea ammonium nitrate) or ammonium sulfate. Moreover, it can be used with crop oil concentrate for both pre-emergent and post-emergent treatments.

Let’s take a closer look at each of them:

When using oil concentrate with the herbicide, ensure that it contains a petroleum or vegetable oil base and meets the following criteria:

  • It should be non phytotoxic.
  • It should only contain EPA-exempt ingredients.
  • It should provide good mixing quality in the jar test.
  • It should have demonstrated success in local experience.

If you opt for a nitrogen source, you can choose either urea ammonium nitrate (UAN) or ammonium sulfate (AMS). For UAN, you can add 1-2 gallons per acre. As for AMS, you can use 8-17 pounds per 100 gallons of spray solution.

Another option is to add a nonionic surfactant to Outlook herbicide. In this case, add 1-2 quarts of an 80% active nonionic spray surfactant per 100 gallons of water.

Methods of Application for Outlook Herbicide

Outlook herbicide can be applied using various methods, depending on specific requirements.

The following methods can be used:

1. Aerial Application

For large-scale areas, Outlook can be sprayed via aircraft equipped with appropriate herbicide-spraying equipment.

During aerial application, it is important to manage spray drift by ensuring that the boom length does not exceed 3/4 the length of the wingspan, and that the nozzle is always oriented backward parallel to the air stream.

Water Volume: The recommended water volume for aerial application is 2 or more gallons per acre. The minimum spray volume per acre depends on the spray equipment used.

2. Ground Application (Broadcast)

The broadcast method is used to apply the herbicide over a designated area where crops are planted, typically as a pre-emergent treatment.

Water Volume: For broadcast applications, it is recommended to use 5 or more gallons of water per acre.

3. Ground Application (Banding)

Banding is an alternative method to apply Outlook herbicide to your crops. In banding, the herbicide is applied in narrow bands between rows or along crop rows.

Water Volume: To determine the appropriate water volume and amount of Outlook herbicide for the banding method, you can use the following formula:

Ground Application (Banding) - Formula - Outlook Herbicide

4. Layby Application

Specifically for field corn, seed corn, and popcorn, the layby application method is used. It involves applying the herbicide in a band around the base of the plants to control weeds.

5. Ground Application (Dry Bulk Fertilizer)

Outlook herbicide can be mixed with dry bulk granular fertilizers and applied to the soil surface before planting or incorporated into the soil as a pre-emergent treatment. This method is commonly referred to as impregnation or coating.

To determine the appropriate herbicide rate when using dry bulk fertilizer, you can use the following formula:
Ground Application (Dry Bulk Fertilizer) - Formula - Outlook Herbicide
6. Herbigation
Outlook herbicide can be applied via herbigation, which involves spraying the herbicide through an irrigation system.

To ensure proper application, the irrigation system should have the following components: a functional check valve, a vacuum relief valve, a low-pressure drain, functional interlocking controls, and a metering pump.

Water volume: Ensure that Outlook herbicide is applied with a volume ranging from 0.33 to 0.67 inches of water, considering the lower volume for coarser textured soils and the higher volume for finer textured soils.

It is important to avoid excessive water volumes (over 1 inch) as they may diminish the herbicide’s ability to control weeds.

How to use it

Applying Outlook herbicide to your crops is not difficult or complicated; in fact, it is easy and fast, especially if you follow the instructions provided on the herbicide label.

To simplify the process for you, I have created step-by-step instructions on how to apply and use Outlook herbicide on your crops:

  1. Verify the Timing: Ensure it is the appropriate time to use the herbicide. This herbicide can be used as a pre-emergent herbicide in spring and fall, but for specific crops, it can also be applied as a post-emergent treatment. Refer to the label instructions for your particular crop.
  2. Check the Weather: See the weather conditions. The temperature should be within the optimal range, not too cool or too hot. Wind speed should be below 10 mph, with no temperature inversion, and the humidity should not be excessively dry, as it can cause evaporation.
  3. Wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): Before handling the herbicide, ensure you are properly equipped with the following PPE for herbicides, as stated on the label:

    – Long-sleeved shirt
    – Long pants
    – Chemical-resistant gloves (barrier laminate, butyl, rubber > 14 mils, neoprene)
    – Shoes and socks
    – Protective eyewear
  4. Prepare the Applicator: The herbicide can be applied using various methods, such as broadcast treatment after planting, layby application for field corn, seed corn, popcorn, or banding/aerial application. Select the appropriate method for your needs.
  5. Solution Preparation: Begin by following the mixing order, rates, and instructions provided on the label. Mix the components and agitate the mixture.
  6. Fill the Tank: Pour the prepared solution into the sprayer tank and fill it accordingly. Calibrate the spray equipment as instructed on the label, paying attention to the recommended nozzle type and pressure.
  7. Application: Spray the desired area, targeting the unwanted weeds.
  8. Incorporate the herbicide: The activation of Outlook herbicide takes place through rainfall, sprinkler irrigation, or mechanical tillage prior to weed seedling emergence from the soil. After spraying the herbicide, it requires approximately 0.5 to 1.0 inches of rain or irrigation to activate it.
  9. Post-Application Precautions: After completing the application, avoid entering the sprayed area for at least 12 hours. Clean your equipment thoroughly.

Outlook and Weed Resistance Management

Outlook herbicide group is Group 15/Group K3 herbicide.

This particular group of herbicides is known as AHAS inhibitors or ALS inhibitors. These herbicides are commonly used in agriculture to effectively control and eliminate unwanted weeds.

Many Group 15 herbicides have residual activity, which means they can remain active in the soil for a certain period. Therefore, Outlook herbicide has also residual activity in the soil for up to a year. The exact residual activity varies based on the soil texture.

Overusing herbicides from this group can contribute to the development of herbicide-resistant weed populations, resulting in the herbicide becoming ineffective in controlling those weeds.

Fortunately, there are strategies to minimize the development of Outlook herbicide-resistant crops.

Here are some steps to consider:

  • Use different types of herbicides that do not belong to Group 15. Group 15 includes dimethenamid-P in Outlook, metolachlor in Focus, or pyroxasulfone in Focus Herbicide.
  • Try herbicide combinations that involve products from different target-site-of-action groups, ensuring they are registered for the same use and effectively control the target weeds when mixed as recommended.
  • Monitor the effectiveness of herbicide applications on targeted weeds and take necessary action to prevent any loss of field efficacy. This may involve using alternative herbicides to Outlook or implementing mechanical weed control methods.
  • Identify the weed species present in the field and gain knowledge about their biology and growth stages.
  • Assess the field after herbicide application to evaluate its effectiveness.

To determine if weeds are resistant to Outlook herbicide, watch out for the following indicators:

  • Lack of effective control on a weed species that is typically controlled when the herbicide is applied at the recommended rate.
  • Presence of a growing patch of untreated vegetation consisting of a specific weed species.

Herbicide Restrictions and Limitations

Outlook herbicide has some restrictions and limitations that you need to be aware of when deciding to use it, and it’s important to respect them accordingly.

These are:

  • The maximum seasonal use rate of Outlook herbicide per acre is 21 fluid ounces, which corresponds to 0.98 lbs of dimethenamid-P. It is crucial not to exceed this recommended dose.
  • The herbicide has a specific pre-harvest interval for each crop, so it is important to follow these intervals.
  • After spraying with Outlook herbicide, no one is allowed to enter the treated area for 12 hours.
  • Do not apply the herbicide to crops that are under stress due to factors such as lack of moisture, hail damage, flooding, herbicide injury, mechanical injury, or widely fluctuating temperatures.
  • Do not use Outlook herbicide in irrigation ditches or water intended for domestic purposes.
  • Regarding crop rotation restrictions, if the herbicide is applied broadcast, a second application is not allowed.

Always read and follow the instructions and restrictions provided on the Outlook herbicide label to ensure safe and effective use.
