Is there a herbicide for removing fescue from bermuda?

Is there any herbicides on the market labeled for removing Kentucky 31 fescue, out of common Bermuda grass, besides glyphosate. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Why would you not use glypho? Especially since its dormant this time of year.

All herbicides will be slow this time of year with cold weather. Revolver would be the best, it's pricey!

My vote definitely to Celsius if you can't use glyphosate

Revolver works best out of anything out there. However If Im not mistaken it is very hard to clean the sprayer of its residue. You almost need a proprietary sprayer for spraying revolver if your using the tank on other warm season turf. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

I've never seen that problem as long a it doesn't sit for months on end. I sprayed about 1,000 gallons of Revolver last year through a 170 gallon tank and a handcan. I didn't have any issues, but it can get mucked up in the main bottle it comes in if it sits June-December.

The problem I have had with glyphosate and dormant bermuda is that when temps are low glyphosate just does not kill, I have had results with like 5 OZ per gallon of 41% glyphosate and 15% serfactent but at that rate there is a real good chance of the bermuda comming out of dormancy yellow, or just not at all. Even if I do kill tall fescue in bermuda it is short term only and comes back in fall, or next summer. that herbicide Revolver sounds good after looking at the label, however after looking at price I will probably stick with glyphosate, man that is a expensive herbicide.
