EU to press ahead with neonicotinoid ban

Industry has condemned a European Commission decision to go ahead with a two-year suspension of the neonicotinoid insecticides, chlothianidin, imidacloprid and thiamethoxam, on certain crops, despite failing for the second time to gain full backing from EU member states. The Commission believes that the possible risk of the pesticides to bee health justifies the action. However, it will delay the implementation of the ban until December 1st, instead of the July 1st date originally planned.
