EU COURT REJECTS BAYER'S APPEAL TO BANNING OF NEONICOTINOIDS
Agri-Pulse reports:

The European Union's highest court has rejected an appeal by Bayer of a lower court ruling that banned three neonicotinoids on dozens of crops because of a potential risk to bees.

The court said the EU's precautionary principle "implies that, where there is uncertainty as to the existence or extent of risks, in particular to the environment, protective measures may be taken ... without waiting for the reality and seriousness of those risks to be fully demonstrated."

The insecticides affected are imidacloprid, clothianidin and thiamethoxam. The first two are Bayer products. Thiamethoxam is a Syngenta product, but Syngenta didn't appeal the lower court ruling.
