    Label indicates this may injure Fescue. I have never used MSMA. I know it's talked of as the miracle herbicide for a lot of our problems but what are the other options out there? We have used Drive/Quinclorac. Also used a producat called Plateau for Johnsongrass but it's not labeled for residential use. The only other option I have seen, for most of these grassy weeds, is Glyphosate, but even this won't kill Johnsongrass unless you apply it over 2-3 years.

    I did not mean to imply that we use Quinclorac for Johnsongrass. I can read. I just don't write so well....
