How low can you go? Can a neonic ban prompt innovation in reducing insecticide use?

With the EFSA review on the current neonicotinoid restrictions imminent the controversy over their role in farming continues. In this session, organised by Friends of the Earth, we’ll hear from farmers who are not just working out how to farm without neonics but also trying to reduce pesticide use. And we’ll go beyond the current debate about one crop – oilseed rape – by asking just how far farmers can go in reducing insecticide use in wheat too where neonics are still currently allowed.
