Delayed start for EU guide on protected crop agchems

The European Commission has agreed to postpone the start date for new guidance on the assessment of pesticides used on protected crops to December 1st 2015. The guidance was issued by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) last year and was originally meant to be applied from May 1st 2015. However, subsequent comments by member states have queried the practicality of implementing the guidance when certain scenarios and models have not been finalised. The guidance applies to crops grown in greenhouses or under cover, and covers the clustering and ranking of pesticide emissions to soil, air and water.
