We have used Accent Gold (Accent plus Hornet I think) on small grass and it does a good job at the stage you are talking about. A slightly cheaper alternative is Steadfast. Each of these run in excess of $25/acre. We used to tank mix atrazine with one or the other as well for the broadleaves, and I think we heated it up a little with 28% N or ammonium sulfate. A local agronomist would be most helpful since they would know what is available. The last years we grew conventional corn we had to have our chemical dealer special order the Accent Gold for us. If you do go the Accent Gold route, the chemical is in little 4-acre packs that dissolve in the water. Rather than just tossing them in the sprayer, I liked to put them in a half-full 2-1/2 gallon jug of water and sloshed it around until it dissolved. Otherwise the little pack can just drop to the bottom of the spray tank, stick there, and not mix in well at all (in the case I am thinking of, a custom sprayer we know did this and then sprayed 35 acres of soybeans after rinsing his sprayer. It killed his beans but our corn field had a poor weed control job). With Accent, a light rain within a few days of spraying will help give residual control, otherwise within a few days it is a good idea to incorporate the chemical in with a row crop cultivator. If I recall, one wet year the grass was thick and we sprayed too late with Steadfast and had to cultivate anyway.
Good Luck!
