    Is there any product that will kill fescue grass but not rye and blue? I have 2 customers with these clumps of bright yellow fescue that really seems to grow much faster than the blue and rye. There lawn looks really bad. thanks

    Look up Certainty in the search function. There have been several discussions about the pro & cons of using this product. I am on the pro side.

    Using Corsair or Certainty will leave you with a pure stand of KBG. Sulfonylurea herbicides are harsh on ryegrass. I normally do not have to think about mixed species lawns because all the lawns I do are single species and single cultivar warm season grasses.

    Sulfonylurea herbicides will take out the Ryegrass.

    Since they grow faster, hit them with roundup on a wick wiper, or using gloves and a sponge wet with roundup.:waving:
