PRESS RELEASE: NO BAN ON NEONICOTINOIDS, BEES AND BEETS CAN LIVE TOGETHER! (BE)

 

Vendredi prochain, les États membres européens se prononceront probablement dans le cadre de la SCOPAFF sur l’interdiction ou non de trois matières actives présentes dans certains produits phytosanitaires en raison de leur impact éventuel sur la santé des abeilles. Les trois matières actives en question appartiennent à la famille des néonicotinoïdes et sont cruciales pour la culture de la betterave et de la chicorée en Belgique. En cas d’interdiction, la Confédération des Betteraviers Belges (CBB) demande certainement une exception pour ces deux cultures.
