    Certainty is labeled for quackgrass in Kentucky bluegrass. Certainty will also take care of fescue in bluegrass. You need to very careful because if the rate is slightly wrong it can turn from a selective herbicide to a non-selective herbicide quickly!

    most of our lawns are ryegrass and fescue, so I don't think that certainty would be a good option.

    Dan, I would think most of the lawns in your area are bluegrass, perennial rye, and fine fescue.

    there is very little bluegrass here. I live in a lower income city where most people don't have irrigation systems. The soil is beach sand, so if it doesn't rain for a week then the whole city turns brown. Not too good for bluegrass.

    Most lawns are fescue and perennial ryegrass,,,, does Certainty work in those kinds of grasses?????

    Certainty is labeled for perennial rye. Not sure about fine fescue.
