Spain to devise national agchem action plan
Spanish authorities and the national agrochemical sector are drawing up a joint “national action plan on sustainable crop protection” in the country. The Spanish crop protection industry association, the Aepla, the plant protection companies association, the Opera, and the Ministry of Agriculture and the Environment, are meeting in Madrid to thrash out the details of the plan. The parties say the discussions are going well on a “wide vision and realistic goals, taking in opinions from across the product chain and from the experiences of those in other European countries”, the Aepla says. The parties expect the plan to be published by November.
