This is the main weed taking over

24-D effected it temporarily but it's back big time among other weeds.

So if I add some dish soap  I may have better results?

I had less grief getting rid of a wife!

It's like a hollow stemmed fern.

Diesel fuel.

That's what I use and nothing came back.   Just spray it over the plant & ground, and poof it is all gone forever.

This might help?

We got it from the telephone company mulching when they put a new box in along the road. Came from old meadows being cut and sold as mulch, full of weeds with little to no hay to ever be considered as mulch?

Agreed, got it where we put creeping thyme, mulched it with junk “hay” now its all over.

2.0 pints/ac Graslan or GrazonNext plus non-ionic surfactant at a quart/100gals. Forget the dish soap, surfactant is cheap and dish soap does not do the same job.

Not from me?

Any chance you can spray it, let it die, or brown out, then plow it, or rototill it? Then, when it comes back, do it all again. It’s sorta aggressive so you need to be aggressive with it.

 Yup it looks like Bedstraw, little stickies like velcro? Is it all over or in one area?  Mow if you can before it flowers and makes seed. If 2 4 D isn't doing it then Roundup or Crossbow.

Be careful as to what you spray where horses will be grazing.

A horse's stomach is much more sensitive than for cows.

I have no idea about the sensitivity of diesel fuel to horses or cows.

Do know from experience that some horses have a finicky stomach.

 

Good luck

Maybe find a use for it. Harvest it and sell it , it will soon go away then if it where worth anything. Or you can always cut and dry it then smoke it once that gets out people will be stealing it form you.

Bedstraw is a noxious weed here. 

Came in with out of state bought hay.

If you don't control it, the county weed patrol will and charge you for it.

Nasty stuff, don't let it take hold Mark.
