Spain’s Andalusia seeks French-style minor agchem regime

The Spanish region of Andalusia's secretariat of Agriculture has called for a pesticide registration scheme for minor crops "the equal of those in France and Portugal", newswire agrodigital reports. Secretary Elena Viboras says that the lack of availability of such pesticide products in the region is a "crucial" concern. The secretariat supports the European Commission's initiative to be debated at the next Council of Ministers (Agrow No 683, p 11), and demands that the national Ministry of Agriculture get involved with EU regulators in order to "take advantage of what pesticide marketing regulations can offer". It further calls for an EU fund "for the development of required trials for the registration of these substances", and a working group among Spanish regional governments to develop "within a reasonable time scale" a pesticide registration procedure.
