What herbicide do I need?

Posted by eacollie 6 (My Page) on

I believe this is goosegrass (lighter green sprouts) and I need a postemergent herbicide for it. Is there any commercial (over-the-counter) that works? The lawn is fescue.

Thanks so much!

RE: What herbicide do I need?

If its not goosegrass and is crabgrass try quinclorac (you can buy generics online). If its goosegrass, good luck getting rid of it. I just sprayed round up on 1/2 of my front yard to get rid of goosegrass.
The best method for goosegrass is a good pre-emergent. The problem with goosegrass is it comes up about a month after crabgrass, so you might need to put two pre-emergents down in the season to control each.
