Barnyard Grass? Bent Grass? Nimblewill?

Hello guys,

I'd like to know what is this, and would Tenacity eliminate it or if I should simply keep using Par III to eventually get rid of it.





Thanks and regards,
Yan

Does the grass have boat-shaped leaf tips? Rhizomes? It could be Kentucky bluegrass.
Take a look at the images for same. And a few other grasses.

Here are close-up pictures. It's distributed equally everywhere on my grass, occupying maybe 10 to 20% coverage.

It looks like Kentucky Bluegrass to me at first glance. Boat shaped tip with a ribbed blade.

it looks like bluegrass to me, my lawn looks the same way since i havent mowed in a week. you could take some samples of the grass to a university or somewhere that it could be proven. depending on what you are trying to accomplish with your lawn, i dont think the bluegrass is bad for the turf
