    I just sprayed a yard about 2 weeks ago with Tenacity to rid it of nimblewill and went back to day to do the 2 app and none of the dallisgrass was affected may be yours was a different kind ?

    Tenacity (mesotrione) is a systemic herbicide that selectively controls nimblewill in bluegrass lawns. (It is also safe for perennial ryegrass, tall fescue, and the fine-leaf fescues.) Tenacity can only be applied by lawn care professionals. It will not be available to home gardeners. When treated with Tenacity, nimblewill stops growing, turns white, and eventually dies. Three applications (at two to three week intervals) are usually necessary to control nimblewill.

    Funny you posted this doc. Here is a thread I have going. Here are some pics of what I found in a lawn. I haven't taken any since I sprayed last Saturday but I can say this stuff is hardly holding on to life since I sprayed it and its only been 6 days. I used Solitaire for the first time and if it suppresses this stuff then I have a winner. Hit it with Q4 back at the end of June and I might as well sprayed it with spring water!

    Hope this helps you.......
