    ok, thanks for everyones help. So I will take the answer that it is NOT Dallisgrass and that it is Paspalum and is in the same family as Dallisgrass. I guess gly is the only solution.

    Really? That much surfactant?

    The reason I ask is because of this other thread;

    I am told that the big companies in our area are using Celsius to control the growth not kill it. They probably got something they spike it with.

    I thought I saw GreenDoc say celsius with revolver or momentum would work. Where is the GreenDoc? Too busy these days or did we scare him off??

    I thought Celsius and Revolver were for use on warm season grasses only not tall fescue?

    Whoops, that's right. I didn't realize you were a cool season guy. Hopefully someone has a solution for you.

    Celsius/revolver combined with Certainty is the ticket to kill dallisgrass. Works great in warm season grasses(Bermuda & Zoysia). I use Certainty combined with Fusilade in cool season grasses (Fescue). When spraying certainty in fescue, be sure to read lable and mix accordingly. At top strength it will kill/burn fescue. I recommend to spot spray. These combinations are more expensive than Gly, but won't kill your desirable turf.

    B&B, do you mean "Celsius + Revolver" or "Celsius OR Revolver"? Does it usually work in one app, or do you need to make multiple apps?

    How are you using Fusilade in your fescue apps? Fusilade isn't labeled for home lawns, so I assume you're using it in commercial applications only?
