After wildfires, what happens to fire retardant-soaked crops?

from KQED

The full extent of the damage from the northern California wildfires that killed 43 people and destroyed 8,400 homes is still being tallied. The devastation left an obvious scar, but not all the damage is visible. Among the assessments still to be made is what impact millions of gallons of fire retardant — essentially a potent fertilizer — may have on carefully tended plants and soils.

Note: For more on flame retardants don't miss the SETAC Minneapolis platform and poster sessions "Flame Retardants — Sources, Environmental Behaviour, Wildlife and Human Exposure, and Effects Implications." more
