Bayer will appeal…the recent ruling of the General Court of the European Union (EU) to ban neonicotinoids.

[T]he German multinational pharmaceutical company stated that it is concerned that the verdict, announced in April, could have far-reaching consequences for the certainty and predictability of active substance approvals in the EU.

Bayer also outlined that it stands by the safety of its products – which have been approved by regulatory bodies around the globe – and reiterates the value that neonicotinoids have for farmers in managing pests effectively.

By appealing against the verdict, Bayer aims to ensure that some general interpretations of the crop protection law established by the court are re-considered.
