I've used Clear Pasture DF with decent results. I've got a little in my T-85 right now but I just dumped more fertilizer on it and am going to see if the Bermuda can just choke it out.

Funny you guys are trying to run it off and I just planted a field full of it. Ha! Different strokes. Course I'm not in the Bermuda hay business and my cows have been taught to eat weeds, (nice little tender spring wild flower types) so they will eat most anything, course being highly fertilized, they are very satisfying along with the warmer weather grasses and the critters seem pleased.

It's everywhere here, stands up to traffic well, makes a great pasture forage, not so good on the yield but then again I kill it......hmmmm maybe that's why it don't yield...

We use alley. Bahia is a pain to kill. And it's not cheap what so ever. 500 a jug for it...

Down in GA, coastal bermuda is the sought after bale but nothing wrong with bahia. Its almost hot weather resistant. Been good to me so far! But I know what you mean, it will seed out and take over a field.

Interesting that you mention Bahiagrass is almost hot weather resistant. Several of us who experienced the very hot and dry summer of 2011 have noticed much less Bahiagrass in our bermudagrass hay fields this spring and summer. Of course, we know that it will come back from seed, but what we have noticed regarding Bahia decline seemed like a better kill than using herbicides.
