BACK
2 May 2018 : In a win for people power, the EU have decided to ban outdoor use of three neonicotinoids, a pesticide notorious for killing pollinating insects – bees in particular.

Originally introduced in the 1980’s as a replacement for older, more toxic chemicals, an ever-growing body of research has helped to underline and highlight their harmful effects on the environment. The fight will now be taken to other countries around the world alongside continuing calls for a ban on the use of glyphosate-based weed killers.

Further work is now needed more than ever to encourage a shift away from industrial agriculture in favour of diversified agricultural systems, an approach fully supported by ANH-Intl.
