Anyone have the recipe for getting rid of broom straw growing in my Bahia grass pasture? 2,4D seems to kill the broadleaf weeds. Is there an herbicide that targets broom staw without killing the Bahia?

In my experience, broomstraw likes acid soils, so the remedy is to lime the fields and fertilize well. I don"t know of a broomstraw specific herbicide, however. In my area(upper SC) the volunteer Bahia grass seems to choke out broomstraw and Bermuda grass, which makes me wonder how hard it would be to get rid of Bahia if necessary. Cows love to graze Bahia and it makes good hay. However, here it does not yield as much as Bermuda or fescue. It is also tough to cut with the disc mower. Any comments in reply about Bahia would be welcome as I have considered planting some. KEH
