I had new Southern Bermuda grass planted in sods about 30 days ago and the lawn is being invaded by the yellow wood sorrel / crabgrass weed.
What product can be recommended for killing this weed without killing the Bermuda, of course ?

Crabgrass comes up by seed. Corn gluten applied at the right time may keep seed from germinating. I think it germinates in fall and spring. Timing is critical.

A better option that doesn't require a small window of time is to just keep pulling them. Dont let them go to seed.

Perhaps the soil is too acidic.  Lime is a big help for getting rid of sorrel.  Or you could eat it.  It's delicious.  It's a plant with many uses. 

here's some useful ideas on organic lawn care.
