With poa, pre is the way to approach it. I am not a cool season grass person, but I would imagine it would be very difficult to eliminate post. In warm season turf in my area, an app in fall and late winter controls it. If you are overseeding you must take apps into consideration.

I have tried Dim EC and 2EC and PreM and nope. Prograss works but high $$$$$. Using it in my own yard now. This year is bad.

How about some pic's? How did you determine it's poa? Its seems hard to tell the difference between some annual rye, some fescues, and poa. I have two lawns on my routes right now that have an infestation of some type of grass, but I do not know how to confirm what they are.

Exonerate from Arysta is relatively new and is showing good results.

I am letting it run its course and making notes of who needs a fall pre-emergent.

I never get calls on poa. I have had a few this year. Lawns that never had it are covered.
