Horse manure - aminopyralid

Vege garden ruined this season as I used horse manure and didn't check whether or not the source sprayed or not. They have since confirmed that they do spray their fields once a year with a product they get from Wrightsons. Sure it is aminopyralid or one of the similar chemicals in herbicides that have caused damage to my tomato plants, potatoes and beans. The pictures are identical to that I see on heaps of internet sites including the guardian research when it became of problem in the UK…
