Andy, 

I'm not sure, but Mike Stanyard of the NWNY Cornell field crops team might be able to answer that for you.  I believe that the team's website is www.nwnyteam.org and his contact info is there.  Good luck!

A local supplier of wheat straw has a reasonable price on his small 
bales but mentioned that he used Harmony as a post-emergent herbicide 
this spring.  I use straw mulches with several of my hoophouse crops - 
tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, cucumbers, melons and am wondering if I 
should have any concern about residue from the spring application 
affecting my crops.  Normally, I wouldn't even be asking this question, 
but after reading about the problems english gardeners have been having 
with manure from animals which ate forages treating with aminopyralid.  
(http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2008/jun/29/food.agriculture).  I 
figure I better that I better ask.

Andy
