Pourquoi le cas du « vigneron condamné pour refus de polluer » fait débat
Excellent Recap - "L'affaire Giboulot" a eu le mérite de mettre en lumière le choix difficile des vignerons face à une maladie. Il serait dommage de la réduire à un débat pour/contre les produits phyto ou pour/contre le principe de précaution. Le vrai sujet, celui dont on parlera encore dans quelques années, reste bien la lutte contre la flavescence dorée, l'investissement de la recherche en la matière et la qualité des moyens à mettre en œuvre."
