In California in the 60's and early 70's diesel was used for weed control and sprayed into creeks for mosiquito control. Times have changed. It's illegal to discharge diesel in water or on land.
User a non selective herbicide like, ERASER, instead. Be patient...the kill takes 5-7 days to show, but it is permanent. Two applications a year usually keeps an infield clean.
