Fiesta is a niche product for clients who require that no synthetic chemicals be used. It is not as effective as chemical herbicides but if applied properly will reduce the weeds that it is labeled to control. Applicators who apply it at below label rate or during the summer have not been pleased with the results. If applied correctly results are much better.

Go to the bottom of my photo page for some before and after pics from a couple Springs ago.
I make plenty of money doing Fiesta Applications. Some of my rules to stay profitable with it are spot spraying only. If a lawn is 50% or more weeds no Fiesta. These lawns we work on fertility and grass establishment first. We do a lot of off site measuring so sometimes at the first application we have to say we won't do fiesta until we get the lawn in better shape.

Your making money applying Fiesta and 2,4-D wow.

Now try and ween yourself off the 2,4-D and lets talk how much money your still making.

You will have to reapply Fiesta 5-8 times a year to achieve the level of success you have with combining 2,4-D

Rescue Treatments are for individuals that do not understand Organic Lawn Care Pesticide Products are a non profitable business failure.

Its either AstroTurf or Chemically Treated Sports Field or Pretending to Sell Organic.

I am still waiting for that Organic Roll of Sod to be marketed.
