Canadian beekeepers divided on neonic cuts

Canadian beekeepers are divided on ways to address potential risks to bees from neonicotinoid insecticide seed treatments. The Canadian Honey Council (CHC), which represents 8,000 beekeepers, has reached agreement with the Canadian Seed Trade Association (CSTA), to target a combined 24% reduction in pesticide use on maize and soybean seed by 2016.
