Does anyone know what this weed is and how do I get rid of it? This is the first year I've seen it and it is spreading fast. It spreads by the roots.

Will centipede or bermuda grass crowd it out? I have lived here for 3 years and only used organic products but have almost an acre to take care of so didn't water or fertilize enough last year. In March Athens Organic applied fertilizer and humate and the grass in most places now looks great. There are just some areas that are thick with this weed so do you think I need to kill grass in those areas too or just keep up a good organic program. Thanks.

You can spot treat the weeds with organic weed treatments (look up the vinegar and orange oil treatment) or you can add more dry molasses to that area and let the grass crowd out the weeds.

There are some grass and turf experts on the forum who may offer more pointed advice, but this is the general information that works - crowd the weeds by feeding the grass, and spot spray the weeds to hurry them along.
