La Turquie, cette puissance agricole à la recherche d'un modèle environnemental - Europe

La Turquie, cette puissance agricole à la recherche d'un modèle environnemental - Europe | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it

Grand pays agricole, premier producteur européen, la Turquie n'est pas membre de l'UE. Elle n'est donc pas un bénéficiaire de la politique agricole commune, et ne le sera peut-être jamais. Ce qui ne l'empêche pas, de longue date, de se poser autant de questions d'ordre « agroenvironnemental » que les Européens. Et d'avancer à tâton, sans véritablement remettre en cause son modèle productiviste. De fait, les craintes liées à la détérioration de l'environnement n'ont pas de frontière. Reportage.

Puglia Mandates Pesticides In Fight Against Xylella, Sparking Protests

Puglia Mandates Pesticides In Fight Against Xylella, Sparking Protests | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it

Puglia’s regional government recently issued the call for commercial olive growers to apply pesticides two times between May and August to kill the meadow spittlebug adults. The insecticides contain acetamiprid or deltametrina. Organic farms are being allowed to use other products, according to the mandate.

But organic farmers and environmentalists are outraged at the new mandate, which is viewed as yet another misguided policy in how to deal with the spread of Xylella, a fatal bacterium for olive trees native to Central America.
