EU issues neonicotinoid restrictions

The European Commission has issued legislation suspending the use of the neonicotinoid insecticides, clothianidin, imidacloprid and thiamethoxam, on certain crops in a bid to protect bees. It will apply from December 1st and covers uses on a wide range of flowering crops, although seed and soil treatments will still be permitted on autumn-sown cereals. The Commission says that it will review the measures within two years. It went ahead with the restrictions despite failing to receive majority backing from EU member states (Agrow No 663, p 13).
