If its bermuda, just wick the dallas grass with gly. Mowing 3-4 times a week will encourage the bermuda to grow horizontal.

I'm up in Kingsport, TN. What is your type of grass? Can't help without knowing this. Roy

i doubt it seriously considering this turf is great and about 4"thick
it is irrigated fert and sprayed..this started showing up last year and after the last fert last week it is growing a foot tall stem i 4 days........ I agree with you on that ishow its supposed to work but the turf is great.....neigborhood envy..wife is getting tired of mowing every 2 days to beat the seeds

cut the grass and bag it, spray msma almost to runoff. too much and it looks
like you used a flame thrower, too little spray and it won't kill. this are might need core areated cause dalis grass likes hard ground.

will check on msma. it gets bagged, the mower that cuts it gets blowed off to prevent weed transfer it gets monthly fert and aerated 2 times a season. and gets sliced monthly durring the growing season

OK, how much Dallisgrass do you have? If possible, attach a photo of a section. Vantage, Proast, and Sethoxydim will knock the Dallisgrass out with two applications. IT WILL ALSO KILL THE BERMUDA. But you can apply it with a long nosed applicator to the center of each clump of Dallisgrass. Beats wicking the leaves. I have a quart oil compressor bottle that I use close to flower beds or borders when treating centipede. Mix it at 2oz./gallon with 1/2 once of MSO and be careful not to dribble. The stems will turn a purple in about two weeks and when this appears, hit it again. Vantage is available at a lot of Co-ops. Spring is the best time when it is very young. Keep it mowed to prevent seeds from forming but it is a perennial.
