Nutri-Lawn introduces Fiesta, a new Natural Weed Control.

Nutri-Lawn, North America’s leader in ecology friendly lawn care is very excited to offer its customers the best Natural Weed Control product to hit the market since the Ontario wide ban of pesticides, one year ago.

Fiesta Lawn Weed Killer (Reg. No. 29535 P.C.P. Act) received federal regulatory approval by the PMRA and is now registered and available for use in lawns, parks, cemeteries, golf courses and athletic fields to selectively control broadleaf weeds in turf. Nutri-Lawn is proud to be one of the first companies to have tested the product and now have this service into production throughout Ontario with plans for other markets this summer.

This new product was developed by Neudorff North America. Fiesta is a natural alternative to the traditional three-way chemical herbicides such as Killex that have been banned in the provinces of Ontario and Quebec and many municipalities across Canada. Its timely introduction comes in a season where Dandelions rule the landscape and homeowners are fed up.

The active ingredient of Fiesta is Iron in the form of FeHEDTA. Fiesta iron is chelated with hydroxyethylenediaminetriaceticacid (HEDTA) to form FeHEDTA. Fiesta contains 4.43% Iron in the form of FeHEDTA.

Fiesta’s mode of action is through Iron toxicity (oxidative damage) at the cellular level. The excessive uptake of FeHEDTA by many broadleaf weeds leads to the contacted area to turn black and brown (tissue necrosis) and ultimately plant death. Broadleaf weeds (dicots) absorb and uptake Iron differently than turf (monocots) which provides the mechanism of selectivity. Fiesta does not harm the desired grass and results take place within hours after application.

FeHEDTA is compatible with integrated weed management practices in that it is applied only when weeds have emerged and is not used as a "preventative" treatment.
