What type of weed spray to use on buffalo grass?

Asked April 27, 2015, 6:58 PM EDT

I have numerous weeds in a buffalo grass covered lot and I'm not sure what to use to kill the weeds but not the buffalo grass. We are in a drought and the black medic, dandelions,etc. are going wild! I've been digging them by hand but the size of the lot is too large for this. What can I use to kill these weeds but not harm the buffalo grass?

Weed control in buffalograss can be challenging. I have about an acre of it myself. Black medic is particularly challenging because it produces so many seeds. Here is a good publication from NE that may help.
