The best herbicide I've found for hay patches is to fertilize good and keep it mowed regular. If you mow down short every 4 to 6 weeks and keep it fertilized the good grass will choke out the weed crop.

If it's over run with weeds then 2-4-D will kill the weeds but it will also kill clovers. That does'nt usually really matter because the weeds will have already choked out the clover anyways.
