Grassy weed identification

Please tell me what this grassy weed is!! You can pull it out in clumps easily, but there is a ton of it in my yard.

Image will not control yellow nut sedge. Hopefully Clemson turf will clarify the sedge variety. Maybe a better picture showing more of the weed.

Looks like yellow nut sedge to me. But get other responses. I'm looking on mobile.

I use Dismiss. Works great, expensive, but it will kill it.

Annual or perennial sedge grass. If you had stalks on it.......I would consider kyllinga.
However, Certainty will get rid of it. Solitare and Celcius will do it also. They both are pricey!
Sedgehammer and these products containing halosulfuron will suppress it.

The problem with sedges is---this weed develops a fibrous under ground network of rhizomes that form nuts on the end of nodes. These are like bulbs that develop into a new plant. You can spend many hours pulling these things up but if you leave a stem in the ground.......it will resume growth. You have to get all the rhizomes and nutlets dead.
These weeds just love moist areas with thinning turf. Sometimes it grows in thick turf but prefers thinning spots. Compaction and poor drainage is the usual culprit.
You are going to spend somewhere around 100.00-200.00 for a container of the good stuff to do the trick. For me.....it is nothing as I need it to do the job and not piddle with the reappearances of stems.
