Brown stalks in my lawn

First post. I've got a nice green 1-acre lawn with the exception of a few moderately sized areas in the front yard that have brown, dead-looking 'stalks' creeping up through the green grass. I'm sure somebody will be able to chime in and tell me what this is and more importantly, how to get rid of it next spring.

That looks like a fungal disease. How much water do you put on and how often?

What kind of grass is that?

RE: Brown stalks in my lawn

kinda looks like dormant zoysia grass, pull some of it out and see if it connects to some type of vine systems at the dirt level.

RE: Brown stalks in my lawn

Yes, it does look like dormant grass, but look closely at the blades. There are two in the front left of the picture which appear to have fungal lesions on them. Then that prompted me to look around further, and it appears a lot of them have lesions. The lesions look like water spots on the grass. One dead blade along the left in the middle shows several lesions as dark looking spots.

Still want to know what kind of grass and what the watering regimen was.

Looks like dormant bermuda grass
