EU top court upholds ban on Bayer pesticides linked to harming bees
Friday, May 7, 2021
The European Union’s top court on Thursday upheld the EU’s partial ban on three insecticides linked to harming bees, preventing their use on certain crops. The European Court of Justice dismissed an appeal by Bayer (BAYGn.DE) to overturn a lower EU court's 2018 decision to uphold the ban. The ruling covers three active substances - imidacloprid developed by Bayer CropScience, clothianidin developed by Takeda Chemical Industries (4502.T) and Bayer CropScience, as well as Syngenta's thiamethoxam. A Bayer spokesperson said it was disappointed by the verdict and stood by the safety of the products, which continue to be used in other regions with appropriate risk mitigation measures applied.Click here to connect to the source of this storyClick here for more News and Views
