    Two non-selective postemergent herbicides that can be used are glyphosate (Roundup and others) and glufosinate (Finale). These herbicides can be used as a post-directed spray, making sure you keep spray off of desirable plants. Selective herbicides for turfgrass include metsulfuron methyl (Manor), imazaquin (Image), imazapic (Plateau), and 2,4-D (Various names). These herbicides can be used safely over-the-top on most turfgrasses. All of these herbicides can be used to control both wild onion and wild garlic.
