Is there a selective herbicide for weed (poison ivy/oak) in monkey grass?


I have a backyard area that's got a healthy bed of monkey grass infested with poison ivy/oak. I'd like to spray the whole area and try to kill off the poison weeds without killing off the monkey grass.

I've heard that 2 4D Amine will not kill monkey grass. Will it kill the poison stuff?

Any other suggestions?

It does not look like you have enough monkey grass to make a difference.


Crossbow (2 4D) at 6 ounces per gallon probably will kill the grass as well but you gotta kill that ivy.


At lower concentrations is is used to kill weeds in pastures so with some careful study and repeated applications you may find a ratio that kills one and not the other. The monkey grass is not a true broad leaf it is closer to orchard grass.

If that's poison ivy or oak that's about the strangest growth habit I've ever seen but maybe it grows like that in AL.
