    Glysophate is pretty benign so is not that big of an issue. If it comes in patches you may just work up the ground and reseed. Otherwise - nada.

    Smallaxe, you know glysophate is not organic.

    And there are numerous studies that question the belief it's benign.

    Why do people wish to kill clover?

    Try a propane powered weed/root burner, then work some seed into the patch.

    Actually our Green Guardian products of 14-0-5 and 8-0-5 work very well in usually one application for both of these. Two apps are recommended for best results to catch escapees.
