Medium_006 Do you recommend Winter Grass Killer or Buffalo Pro for use on Kings Pride variety to remove rye grass?

I beleive the infestation to be a winter growing rye grass which appears in a rapidly spreading multi rooted clump. It disappears when the buffalo gets into its growing season.

Answer: Hi Brian,

Unfortunately neither Wintergrass Killer or Buffalo Pro will control rye grass in buffalo grass. It is very difficult to control a grass within a grass except by hand weeding.

As the weather warms up do you find this weed disappears by itself? Try to mow any seeds heads before they spread further throughout the lawn. Use a catcher and place the clipping in the green waste if seeds are present.
