The weedy grass cannot be identified from the photograph. An actual plant specimen will be needed for identification.

Dig up a clump of the grass, place it in a plastic bag, and send the plant specimen to Horticulture Extension, 2206 Osborn Drive, Iowa State University, Ames, Iowa 50011. Include a note with your name and home or e-mail address. Also, include the reason for the identification request, for example, would like to control it if possible.
