High demand for new weed killer delays shipments


Demand for the newest approved weed killer is much higher than forecasted, causing slight delays in shipments.
Fiesta Lawn Weed Killer received approval by the PMRA and the Ontario government on Apr. 30. "The launch of Fiesta in Canada has been a great success,” says Cam Wilson, Neudorff's chief technical officer in North America. Neudorff North America manufactures Fiesta.
Shipments arrived in Ontario by mid-May. Fiesta is distributed as a liquid concentrate. Presently distributing the product in Ontario are Dufferin Lawn Life, JB&D and Plant Products.
Early reports confirm that Fiesta should be a valuable tool for the lawn care industry. Pam Charbonneau, OMAFRA Turf Specialist, has evaluated the efficacy of its active ingredient iron chelate for control of broadleaf weeds in turf. “The results are still very promising considering there are very few alternatives that provide this level of weed control,” wrote Charbonneau. Her entire report can be found in the May issue of Horticulture Review.
