17 agri-food stakeholders (including Europatat) have co-signed a joint open letter stressing the potential impact of the current proposal on Sustainable Use of Plant Protection Products Regulation (“SUR”) on the EU agricultural value chain, considering the current socio-economic situation in Europe.

The co-signing organisations call on the EU institutions to take into consideration the following points:

  1. Need for a comprehensive impact assessment
  2. Adequate targets that are based on science and feasible for producers
  3. Need to provide alternatives before withdrawing chemical solutions
  4. Proper definition and reconsideration of the ban on the use of any PPPs in sensitive areas
  5. Reduce the potential burden for farmers to comply with the SUR provisions to the minimum
