Absinth Wormwood Control (5/11/17)

Question: How can absinth wormwood be controlled in a newer alfalfa/grass pasture or CRP planting that he planted last year, but doesn’t want to kill the alfalfa. In looking through the alfalfa herbicides in the weed guide on pages 48-49 I see several herbicides recommended, such as Pursuit, Raptor, and 2,4 DB amine. They all indicate no wormwood control. Of the wormwood herbicides on page 65, how bad would Chaparral, Milestone or Tordon hurt the alfalfa?
