I have this "weed" in several patches in my bermuda. I had it last year as well. I hope you can tell from the picture. I don't remember noticing it this early last year. My lawn has been organic for one year now. Since March 1, we are about 6 inches below normal in rainfall here in Tulsa.

Can someone identify this? Thanks.

That looks like crab grass to me.

If it died out and hasn't returned (yet), then yes, crabgrass. If, when, it returns, try sprinkling baking soda on it or better yet, put a teaspoon of baking soda in 16 ounces of water and spray ONLY THE FOLIAGE. In 3 days it should be black and dieing.

It returned probably several weeks ago -- the same places as last year. Plus some new places.

What about potassium bicarbonate instead of bakin soda as I already have some of that mixed up?

Thank you.

My Homeowners Association is trying to force me to use a weed treatment to kill the few weeds i have. I think some patches of crab grass are my problem. So baking soda with water really works? Any other ideals. I am tired of pulling by hand !!! *

There is a new organic cinnamon based product that is designed to kill crabgrass. Call AG Organics and ask about it. 972-347-3330. I don't know what retailers carry it but I know they do.
