French environment law progresses in Parliament

The French government's environmental initiative, the Grenelle de l'Environment, was supported on the first reading by the country’s national assembly, reports the French news website, Terre-net. It received 526 votes in favour and four against. 350 of the suggested 2,200 amendments to the draft law were accepted. It will now go forward to the Senate for final adoption in 2009. The adoption of the Grenelle is expected to reduce pesticide usage in France and the country’s agrochemical industry association, the UIPP, has criticised the plan ( Agrow No 530, p 13).
