Farming. The (temporary) return of neonicotinoids validated by the State Council

After the Constitutional Council, it is up to the State Council to validate the temporary return of neonicotinoids.

The State Council validated this Monday the provisional reauthorization of neonicotinoid insecticides in the sugar beet industry. The highest administrative court considers that it was not contrary to the Constitution or European law, which provides exceptions to its general prohibition.
