French court dismisses Syngenta Cruiser OSR appeal

The Versailles Administrative Court in France has dismissed the request made by Syngenta requesting the suspension of the decision of the Minister of Agriculture to withdraw the authorisation of the sale Cruiser OSR (thiamethoxam 280 g/litre + fludioxonil 8 g/litre + metalaxyl-M 32.3 g/litre). The Minister revoked the approval last month ( Agrow No 643, p 9) and followed it with the imposition of a ban on treating oilseed rape seed with thiamethoxam ( Agrow No 645, p 12). Syngenta is “extremely disappointed” by the outcome, despite the “overwhelming” scientific evidence attesting to the safety of the product. Growers and the value chain have already lost up to €200 million ($245 million) of economic value, it says. The company will continue to contest the withdrawal of the Cruiser OSR registration, although the financial cost to Syngenta is relatively small in comparison to the impact on growers and the value chain.
