In mid-April, Fiesta, a new weed control product manufactured by Neudorff North America, received its registration certificate from the PMRA. Complete Ontario approval is the next step.

Company vice president Cam Wilson told Horticulture Review, “We expect to have Fiesta available in Ontario by early May.” In an earlier interview, Wilson said, “We think this is the Holy Grail of weed killers. Our company is very excited about the possibilities.”

The product is now before the Ontario Ministry of Environment for public comment. Fiesta is a selectively-toxic iron compound that can be absorbed through leaves. The product will be distributed as a liquid concentrate.

In an extensive article that begins on page 24, OMAFRA’s Pam Charbonneau presents her findings following her tests on Fiesta.
