How does Fiesta® work compared to traditional Herbicide products?
Fiesta® can achieve the same results, however timing and the number of applications vary from the traditional products. With lower spray temperatures Fiesta® can be sprayed earlier in the season, however since the iron toxicity of Fiesta® is essentially a top growth killer it is important to do a second application to ensure the best control of the weeds.
A minimum two applications is recommended, for optimum control you may wish to go with 3-4 applications per season. The second application is done approximately 4 weeks after first spray date.
Fiesta® is an iron based product that has no unpleasant odors and as well is safe for children and pets within a few hours. It is an effective alternate to 2,4-D/Par3 to control your broadleaf weeds on home lawns, school grounds, and golf course.
