Not yet. Still looking. Please reply if you find anything. I'm going to just try bayer advanced in a small spot and see if it kills it.

basket grass...i have it and it will take over..likes mostly shade and damp areas...have been researching and will try herbicide for crabgrass or a more organic approach with flour and baking soda(half and half)and 3 tlb. cinnamon...just a light dusting after amist of water on leaves...lately we have had too much rain to try it...so cant comment on effectiveness....bz

I think that may be it. Christ, another weed that sounds impossible to kill. I finally find something to kill the nimblewill that's all over my lawn now this. I have way too much of this stuff to try the organic approach. I'm not sure what herbicide even kills this stuff other than a non-selective which isn't an option.

Thanks for info.

I've noticed that tenacity which has eradicated my nimblewill problem and has done a nice job as a post-emergent herbacide on crabgrass also browns this stuff. It takes up to 3 sprayings, each two weeks apart, to get rid of nimblewill. I only did one spraying on this stuff so maybe a few more sprayings would do the job. Tenacity is even more effective if you apply earlier in the growing cycle. I didn't learn about it until the summer so most of my weeds were pretty mature by then hence the need for the 3 sprayings. I'll report back any further results I have using tenacity.
