The herbicides stronger on grassy weeds include Celsius, Revolver, or Monument. I was not thinking about Manor because it is more a broadleaf herbicide. I do know that some cool season grasses/weeds are injured by it.

I believe fl landscapes hit the nail on the head...my vote...Little Barley.
Thank you sir. Yes foxtail is more of a high heat middle of the summer seeder. It is a common mistake to mix the two but if you know the life cycle (as you obviously do) then everything you said in your first paragraph points to little barley.

Thanks Ted and Fl.scapes.
My misjudgement at full swing.
You even helped me as i have had this weed taken to the extension dept.
It escaped the simazine and took over a zoysia lawn. First ever outbreak in my 5 years of treatments.
The extension service should have acknowledged it being little barley.
My gut feeling led me to something else. Thanks for your identifying it spot on.
But like i said, without the msma mix done in April.... This stuff came out crazy.

With the loss of MSMA, my first attack on grassy weeds includes Revolver. Most grassy weeds save for lovegrass and Chloris are affected by it. In my area, Simazine is more of a post emergent. Many years ago, before Revolver, it was part of a goosegrass and smutgrass tank mix. Grassy weeds were not as much of an issue back then because only bermuda or zoysia would survive that tank mix. Before you get scared off by the price of Revolver consider that effective rates are 16-20 oz per acre. It is not how much you apply so much as how it is applied. If I cannot get a weed with a 20 oz per acre application, it does not make sense to double down and apply 2 oz per gallon and a gallon of spray per 250-125 sq ft. Might as well just open the cap and pour a little on each weed at that rate.

Bike,
It is definitely little barley. I have had it in several lawns these last two years. I use revolver to kill it. It does a great job. You can also use Certainty at the high rate.
