France extends Cruiser approval

France has granted a one-year approval extension for Syngenta's seed treatment insecticide, Cruiser (thiamethoxam), for the control of wireworms ( Agriotes spp) in maize seed. The extension was granted by the Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries, Bruno Le Maire, after receiving favourable opinion from the French food safety agency, the AFSSA, which is responsible for risk assessment. In light of concerns expressed by beekeeper associations, the approval has been granted for one year and will be subject to further evaluation by the AFSSA before being renewed.
