Field Overun with 'Spotted Knapweed"

    Noticed a few of these growing in one section of the field last year and didn't think much of them as I didn't know what they were:

    After searching for ages, I found that they are called "Spotted Knapweed" and this year have completely taken over the whole field, killing the grass growth altogether.

    Luckily I topped them back in April as the few that I missed are now flowering. I've noticed that the leafy base is regrowing so figured now would be a good time to spray them.

    Has anyone dealt with these before? Any recommendations for treatment, sprays etc welcome
