Food and farming trade disruption looms as EU again postpones glyphosate renewal

The GLP aggregated and excerpted this blog/article to reflect the diversity of news, opinion and analysis.

After failing twice to approve a new license for glyphosate, EU member states did not support a limited 12-18 month extension of the herbicide’s current license on Monday, June 6.

The license for glyphosate in the EU is set to expire on June 30th. If approval isn’t granted by then, EU member states would have to withdraw glyphosate-based products within six months, effectively banning the world’s most common herbicide. For exporting countries such as Canada and the United States, import tolerances for glyphosate on crops shipped to the EU would practically disappear, potentially creating a major trade disruption.
