Any exemptions granted will no longer be valid after December 31st 2015 and no more derogations will be issued after that date. Maize and bananas will no longer be exempt from any prohibitions of aerial spraying. Only rice and grapevine crops will still be subject to derogations until the end of 2015. The draft decree is open to public comments until July 15th.
