Grassy weed I'd

I have 2 lawns that have this in it. What do y'all think it is. I sprayed drive75 on it at recomended rate on some of it to test and didn't touch it. Didn't spray this here. Thanks for the help.

Do you know plant anatomy to help ID this with us?
http://www.commodities.caes.uga.edu/...agramParts.htm

After looking at this link what characteristics can you tell us? You will get answers this way. Grasses are real hard to ID in person sometimes-you're giving us just a pic online
Fescue, orchard, IDK what you got there. Are there auricles is my question for you? What is hairy if anything?

It is fescue lawn with some crabgrass. Lol. . I've sprayed it with momentum for broadleaf and now trying to work on this. This weed grass is in about 1/3 of it. I will take better Picts and look at the blades closer to describe. Thanks for the link

You welcome. If you take a few minutes to look over the pics here http://www.msuturfweeds.net/browse-by-name/ and read the ID keys when you see something similar you'll probably get a lot out of the time you spend. I can narrow grasses down to 2 or 3 guesses. Usually. Problem is I don't have an expert to point out my mistakes so I can really learn.

Pics of grasses are tough, only a fool would argue online with someone about an ID from a picture online.

Someone here on LS will catch this thread and help you out better than I can. It shouldn't take muchI've shown you all my tricks. Good luck!

Broomsedge

It's not actually a sedge... MSMA would kill it. Now, nothing else out there will other than Glyphosate.

I dribble R-Up on each clump or dig it.

Welcome to the wonderful world of "No MSMA"

P.S. It has a shallow root system and digs fairly easy if there is only a few clumps. If the lawn has quite a bit...well...have fun!
