Syngenta and Bayer CropScience Propose a Comprehensive Action Plan to Help Unlock EU Stalemate on Bee Health
Date:3/27/2013

rotection products - particularly in maize, oilseed rape, sunflower and cotton.
  • Mandatory implementation of strict measures to mitigate the exposure risk to bees; these are currently already recommended by the manufacturers and effectively applied by most farmers as good agricultural practice.
  • Investment in and implementation, at the earliest opportunity, of new technologies which further reduce dust emissions from the planting of seed treated with neonicotinoid crop protection products.
  • Further investment in the research and development of new solutions for the main factors impacting bee health, which include parasites and viruses, and establishment of area-wide long-term pilot studies which demonstrate their effectiveness.

  • NOTES TO EDITORS

    In further detail, the key features of the action plan are:

    Significantly scale up the provision of pollen rich flowering field margins across the EU to be sown alongside bee attractive crops treated with neonicotinoids to provide habitat and nutrition.

    • This would build on Syngenta's 10-year Operation Pollinator program which has demonstrated that these margins dramatically increase pollinator populations, including honeybees.
    • This would address one of the main factors identified by the European Commission in the decline in bee health.

    Support for the establishment of a comprehensive field monitoring program for bee health including the detection of crop protection chemicals

    • A comprehensive program, following the guidelines for surveillance projects by the EU Reference Laboratory for honey bee health, shall be established.
    • The current monitoring work of the EU reference laboratories on bee health, supported by national bee institutes, should be reinforced and extended.
