Will Southern Ag control or limit Torpedo grass without hurting Centipede grass?

I used last year during the early summer and appears to have killed areas of my Centipede. How can I control or eliminate Torpedo grass?

Answer:

Southern Ag Lawn Weed Killer with Trimec is not labeled for torpedo-grass and the product label does warn that it can be damaging to centipede grass.  Most of the herbicides will only suppress the torpedograss for a short time. It is recommended to spot treat the torpedo grass with a non-selective herbicide such as Round Up Quick Pro and then reseed or sod in the treated areas.
