Can anyone identify this weed, growing in my emerald zoyzia lawn? It is a wiry, tough weed which appears to propagate with rhizomes. Stem and roots very tough. Spreads through the turf and you can often pull up chains as long as 24 inches.

I got it. That is common Bermuda grass. Tough to control in zoysia. Fusillade can suppress the Bermuda, but you have to be very careful with application rates. Or gather as many of the grasses runners as you can and rub Roundup on it with a cloth soaked in Roundup,

Any ideas as to coverage and application methods for the Fusillade? I have a bunch of this stuff in my Zoyzia and am afraid that it will take forever to use the Roundup by hand method.
