Confront decays slowly in the soil. Apparently some people were doing bagged mowing shortly after herbicide treatments, and clopyralid (one component of Confront) was found in processed compost. Guess clopyralid decays even more slowly in a pure organic environment.

Dow, whose patent on clopyralid was soon expiring anthow, decided to take residential use off of Confront label. However, clopyralid is used in other herbicide fromulations, and I'm not sure what direction these other formulators will take. You can continue to use any form of clopyralid based on label directions on the container. There is probably some of the Dow product still in the supply stream which won't have the new label.
