Bayer CropScience and Syngenta, today unveiled an action plan to unlock the EU stalemate on bee health. This follows the failure of the European Commission to reach agreement with Member States on an appropriate response to EFSA’s report on the theoretical risk to bee health from neonicotinoid crop protection products.
Bayer CropScience welcomes the fact that no consensus was reached by the EU Member States in favor of the European Commission’s proposals regarding the use of most applications of neonicotinoid-containing products. This provides hope to European farmers, that they can continue to have access to safe and effective crop protection products supporting their ability to grow safe, high-quality, affordable food. The failure to reach a conclusive decision is a clear recognition that there is no convincing argument against the continuing use of neonicotinoid-based products.
Mounting spring workloads may tempt sprayer operators to rush herbicide sprays but compromising timing or application quality will result in sub-optimal control, warns Bayer CropScience.
Bayer CropScience regrets the European Commission’s draconian proposal to suspend all uses of neonicotinoid products in crops attractive to bees for two years.
The time is now for a Greener Revolution in Agriculture, to increase the productivity of farming in a more sustainable and environmentally compatible way, said Bayer CropScience’s new CEO Liam Condon in his keynote address at the Global Forum for Food and Agriculture (GFFA) in Berlin today.
Bayer CropScience is currently evaluating the reports published by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) on neonicotinoids and bees today. The company is ready to work with the European Commission and Member States in order to take the necessary steps to develop pragmatic solutions to address the perceived data gaps which EFSA consider to be present. We proactively work on closing data gaps which arise and continue to be open to constructive dialogue with the competent regulatory authorities, in order to discuss all relevant points relating to the safety of our products.
