EU Pesticide bans:
The report commissioned by three farming bodies said the EU was on course to “ban” use of 40 chemicals by 2020 to reduce environmental damage.
It said this could lead to a surge in pests, affecting production of apples, carrots and peas, among other crops.
Conservation groups said reducing pesticides would help the environment.
The independent report was carried out by business consultants Andersons and jointly commissioned by the National Farmers’ Union (NFU), the Crop Protection Association (CPA) and the Agricultural Industries Confederation (AIC).
