Joint Statement: Urgent need for precise public data on the use of pesticides across Europe
More than 60 organisations, including Eureau, EFFAT and SumOfUS express their deep concerns about the direction the negotiations within Trilogues are taking on the reform of the agriculture statistics regulation (SAIO). To ensure that European agriculture shifts away from pesticide-intensive practices, we need precise public data on what pesticides are used where, when, on which crops and in what quantities.

Publication of the revision of the legislation on the sustainable use of pesticides, on 23 March 2022.
Dear President von der Leyen, Executive Vice-President Timmermans, dear Commissioners Kyriakides, Wojciechowski and Sinkevičius,
Over the last weeks, we have witnessed numerous public interventions with alarming messages according to which the EU’s “food security” is in danger because of the war in Ukraine. We are aware that international solidarity is and will be needed, but the situation in the EU with regard to “food security” and “food sovereignty” is different to the messages we have heard these last weeks.
Shameless instrumentalization of the Ukraine conflict by trade associations to waive EU food and feed safety standards
Dear Vice-President Timmermans, dear Commissioners Kyriakides and Wojciechowski,
We are writing to you in reaction to the attempt of severable trade associations to take advantage of the terrible Ukrainian war to challenge the existing EU food and feed safety standards.
