I've got TONS of crabgrass or something that looks very similar. It sprang up 3-4 weeks ago and is now 1-2 feet long in some places (will mow this weekend!). Anyway, did all the moisture and bouts of warmer days this winter make the warm-weather weeds come in early? If so, is it too late to put out corn gluten meal (i.e. I don't want to feed the weeds!)? Are there other types of warm weather weeds on the way that can still be hindered using the pre-emergent corn gluten meal technique? I live in Austin, so we're probably at least a couple of weeks ahead of North Texas regarding the onset of warmer weather (and a couple of weeks behind with onset of colder weather in the Fall). If someone will tell me how, I'll post an image.

It's likely poa annua.

See this thread so we don't get duplicate answers going.

CGM for summer/fall should be done right now.

OK Thanks. I had already read that thread and was still uncertain. The pictures of Poa I found on the internet looked less like my weed than crabgrass. I'll look into it again.

Bill, I found some good seed heads on one of the weeds and used it to check the id again. You are dead on--it's Poa annua. One of the things that was throwing me before was that the photos I saw before were largely from other Poa species. The blade/stem intersections and the seed heads are a perfect match. Thanks for your help.

Tim
