Syngenta/Bayer propose EU neonicotinoid plan

Syngenta and Bayer CropScience have proposed an action plan to help resolve the EU stalemate on the “theoretical risk” of neonicotinoid insecticides on bee health. The move follows the failure of the European Commission to gain the qualified majority vote from EU member states to support its proposal for a two-year suspension of the neonicotinoid insecticides, clothianidin, imidacloprid and thiamethoxam, on certain crops ( Agrow No 659, p 10). The proposal was put forward after the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) identified risks to bees ( Agrow No 657, p 7). However, several member states had expressed doubts whether the measures were justified, given the uncertainties highlighted in the EFSA’s report.
