Problem with Tall Fescue in the North East

Hello all I am a manager for a large design build, maintenance company with an in house fertilization, chemical application division. I currently have a huge problem with tall Fescue in a cool season Rye, Blue, Fescue seeded lawn of about 30,000 sf that has us stumped. We have had some problems with a few bunching clumps of Tall Fescue before that we would spot treat with glyphosate but this is throughout the entire lawn so that is not an option due to cost.
Any help would be appreciated.

Lesco TFC was made by Nufarm, who still makes it. Corsair also kills Perennial Ryegrass so use care. Bluegrass will not be harmed.

Use a spray dye indicator to isolate the treatment area.
Corsair is also amazingly effective on violets.

Certainity works well. Timing is everything. Make sure turf is 4-6 inches high when you apply. Good coverage 10-15 gal/acre using finer spray. Use flat fans, no air induction nozzles.
