French report on pesticide use reduction delayed

The French Minister for Agriculture and Fisheries, Michel Barnier, will present a report outlining the plan to halve pesticide usage in France by 2018 to the country’s Council of Ministers by the end of August, says the French news website, Terre-net. The report, Ecophyto 2018, was initially expected to be presented at the end of July. The draft of the report was prepared by the permanent secretary of the French Academy of Agriculture, Guy Paillotin, in May as a “concrete action plan” for pesticide reduction in response to the French government's environmental initiative, the Grenelle de l'Environment. Mr Paillotin was entrusted with the responsibility of preparing an action plan towards the beginning of this year ( Agrow No 537, p 12).
