String Wing, 5' Rope Wick Chemical Applicator
The String Wing rope wick is a chemical applicator that attaches to that rear of a tractor or to the front of an ATV. The applicator measures 5 ft. long, and system evenly distributes pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers with less waste.
The String Wing rope wick provides better chemical coverage and control with less drifting than other application methods. This 5 foot rope wick is constructed of 3 inch PVC with alternating wicks connected through a series of fitting adapters, designed to eliminate missed coverage.The String Wing has a 1-1/4 inch fill port to add Roundup® and there is a breather to prevent vapor locking. The rope wick is used horizontally and the wick runs diagonally from top to bottom. With this combination, the wicks stay saturated during use. The rope wick comes in a 5 foot section but multiples can be used in a series for broader applications. The String Wing can be connected as a pull behind device on tractors, or it attaches to the fronts of ATVs.

This is just an idea. Instead of mounting to your FEL, mount these tubes to a three point hitch implement or a tool bar allowing room to raise above your fescue. At that point the tractor tires wont be a factor in tracking the chemicals as the wicks will be behind the tractor spreading the product. May require making a bracket to get the elevation you might need.
I bought two of these 5ft units. Mounted them on the front-end loader of my tractor and wick Johnson Grass in Hay Fields using Glyphoste (mixed it at a high rate)it worked good, if you're careful you won't kill the fescue or other grass growing below the Johnson Grass. One problem is that the tractor tires will carry some into the grass after running over the Johnson Grass. But this isn't a big problem I don't see how it can be prevented.
I have used this product before with good results!
