What Type of Grass is That?

I was posed that question yesterday while making a site visit for a future project.  Here is a photo of the field:

The answer - The green turf is a tall fescue blend.  The brown turf is a combination of crabgrass and goosegrass.  This site had 2 frost events in the last 2 weeks.  Thus, the crabgrass and goosegrass is turning off color.  How much cragbrass is our your field?  Maybe a crabgrass preventer is warranted in '13.

To learn more about crabgrass, click HERE to see an article from SportsField Management Magazine.
