    It's my undersatnding that this product is an herbicide and is focused on broad leaf plants. It's possible that it could effect grapes, walnuts and almonds as they are all broad leaf plants.

    Doug: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency defines a herbicide as "a chemical pesticide designed to control or destroy plants, weeds, or grasses." (http://goo.gl/xvJ4T) But you make a good point — it would be nice to know exactly what was adrift. I'll ask the reporter, but as the story says, more information may not be released until the investigation is completed.
