My questions are;
1. Will the Yates Winter Grass Killer affect my Princess 77 which is referred to as a Bermuda Grass and a close relative of couch?
2. Will the Yates Winter Grass Killer help to control the Kikuyu in my Princess 77 lawn and if not, can you suggest how I can rid my lawn from this rotten Kikuyu ?

Answer: Hi Richie,
Yates Winter Grass Killer has not been tested on Princess 77 hybrid couch so we are unable to say whether the grass will be affected. It would be best to test a small section of your lawn before applying the product to the whole lawn.

I have attached an article from the DPI in QLD which has some recommendations for removing grass from Princess 77.

These products are probably not available in small quantities for the home garden but are used professionally by Golf Course Superintendents, Bowling Greenkeepers and Professional Lawn Care Companies.
