CropLife Europe Position on the Proposed Sustainable Use of Pesticides Regulation (SUR)

Description




CropLife Europe believes the promotion of innovation will be the key driver for achieving the objectives of the Sustainable Use of Pesticides Regulation and for the necessary transformation of European agriculture toward sustainability.


Pesticide reduction targets at EU and national levels need to consider the availability of alternatives and address individual country-specific agricultural environments to transition to a more sustainable European food system.


Alongside promotion of IPM and best practices for sustainability, the European agricultural sector needs a policy framework conveying a clear plan for delivering innovative technologies across the full spectrum of available solutions and increases the uptake of digital and precision tools and biopesticides.
