Canadian province aims to cut neonic use by 80%

The Canadian province of Ontario aims to reduce by 80% the area planted with maize and soybean seed treated with neonicotinoid insecticides by 2017. The "aspirational target" will require government, industry, farmers and all stakeholders to work together to achieve it, the provincial government points out. The proposal is included in a discussion document for a Pollinator Health Action Plan that is to be developed over the next 12 months. It seeks to address four stressors that "directly impact pollinator health": pesticide exposure; pollinator habitat and nutrition; diseases, pests and genetics; and climate change and weather.
