Syngenta AG To Challenge EU Suspension Of Bee Crop Chemical-DJ

Dow Jones reported that Syngenta AG said it has submitted a legal challenge to the European Commission's decision to suspend the use of thiamethoxam on bee attractive crops. The Commission took the decision on the basis of a flawed process, an inaccurate and incomplete assessment by the European Food Safety Authority and without the full support of EU Member States, Syngenta said. Syngenta called on all stakeholders to concentrate on practical solutions to bee health, which experts agree is damaged by disease, viruses and the loss of habitat and nutrition.
