Can you help identify this grass/weed?

A few of my customers yard has this grass popping up in it the past month.

Is this a normal grass? Or a weed? One of my customers yards its taking over and looks horrible! I can't mow stripes in this stuff!

Is there something I can use to treat this stuff?

I am in south east wisconsin. We have treated the lawns with a pre-emergent in the spring, and regular weed and feeds throughtou the season, liquid treatments of Momentum from JDL.

Thanks in advance!

Does that grow tall as well? This seems to grow taller than the regular crab grass.

Yes it does, it may be goose grass but it really doesnt look like it. Go back to JDL and purchase either some Drive XLR8 or some Solitair, both a bit pricey but they will get the job done, sometimes takes two apps of drive. Momentum doesnt kill crabgrass, just suppresses it.

What about Quinclorac? Is that similar to the items you listed?

Better/worse?

Thanks for the help!

Go here and look at the different stages of growth...............inspect your weed from the leaf, ligule, stems, seed if applies. Also look at the stem crown at the base closer to the ground for color variations. This site has some good pictures and descriptions.
