Warnings mount on food impact of EU agrochemical plans

As food prices rise around the world, more European groups are predicting that the region's food production will be adversely affected by proposals to change EU agrochemical legislation. The latest warning comes from European agricultural scientists, who argue that politicians have "overlooked" the fact that the potential loss of pesticide active ingredients would lead to the increased development of resistant pests. The scientists fear that this will endanger food predictability and security, and make the production of many crops, including grapevines, wheat, barley, cotton, fruit, potatoes and vegetables, in Europe "problematic and/or uncompetitive".
