European Commission urged to support minor uses and speciality crops
Yesterday agra-food.net – ‘serving the agri-food industry’, reported that ten agri-food chain bodies have called for urgent action from the European Commission to provide more support for the cultivation of minor uses and speciality crops through increasing the availability of plant protection products.
See also the European Crop Protection site.
The call from the agri-food chain associations came after the Commission delayed publication on December 14 of a report to the European Parliament and Council on promoting minor uses and specialty crops under Regulation (EC) 1107/2009.
A web search failed to reveal what exactly is meant by:
