My son and I found the perfect place for a plot, 1/4 acre right in the middle of a fern patch. we worked the ground with a disk, seeded and fertiized it. It is now 4 weeks later and the ferns are back. Is there any way to kill the ferns without killing the clover?

Thanks

Imox or 2-4db should work. Best to hit them when they are small.

Also use lots of lime. Most ferns like acidic soil.

Agree with Olink. My plots in northern Michigan were ferns plots the first year. Prior to planting i had soil test done and Ph was 4.6. Lime lime lime . Third year now and still a few ferns on edges , where I probably did not get enough lime on. i like every spring trying to balance out the Ph. I plant buckwheat in early June , followed by rye for fall winter. This summer the buckwheat was hammered by the deer. Mowed off last week and planted buckwheat and rye. Hopefully the deer will be on the plots come bow season .

24D will kill clover. I use it for that purpose in my lawn

Several variations of 24d. Amine version for the lawn. 24-d b for legumes
