    It'll be worth it for me to go back over there, this evening (if I have time), to get more photos. I appreciate the interest, guys.

    Should I be trying to go ahead and locate some MSMA?
    Anything else I can look at for cool season turf?

    I'll check with my supplier this AM, also. I'm sure I can find something going to seed in one of the two lawns.

    Vencops: Check out my thread especially page 4 with my pics)

    It looks very similar to what I sprayed. I am aearating/overseeding in mid Sept too. I sprayed Q4 Plus at about 3.5oz/gal. Had visual results in 48 hours. Hopefully this kills it and doesn't just injure it.

    The yard I sprayed had a mix and some of it looked exactly like what you posted. I wasn't sure either but I thought Barnyard or Goose as well. Had some foxtail too.

    I took several pictures, tonight. I'll post them up in a bit (after dinner). There's more than one culprit in there!

    On a happy note, I got ahold of some of the good stuff for these pests. Hopefully we'll get 'em knocked out, soon.

    Photos, later, of the different weeds.

    My supplier still has several 1 gal jugs of Trimec Plus. I bought 10 2.5 gallon jugs last yr before that ban so I would have enough. But Q4 with surfectant seems to work very well even in high temps where the T Plus was burning at temps over 85

    I am thinking crabgrass--but I can't tell the difference between regular and large crabgrass. We need pictures of the seedhead. The seedheads are distinctive. I am guessing you don't anticipate frost in the near future. Did you use a surfactant like MSO with the spray? It's mature--be sure you mix it strong enough.

    Yes. I used the MSO.

    Most of what I sprayed is smoked. I went back over there, today. Some, looks like it isn't even hurt, though.

    I'm not dealing with JUST CG. I know that, now. I can either look up this stuff (based on the seed heads) and learn that way. Or, I can post it up and let you guys educate me. Honestly, I'm gonna do both. I'll post photos in a few.

    I mixed my Drive XLR8 @ 1.5oz./gal with 1/2oz. MSO surfactant/gal..

    That's Dallis Grass

    Goose grass has silver center

    Large CG has red center where the blades come out of the crown

    I'll post some pics, later in the week. I'm doing a test-spray on this, Wednesday AM. I'm going to add a little Ammon. Sulfate to try to thwart yellow-ing.
