The proposals of European Commissioner Frans Timmermans for making European agriculture more sustainable are not well received. His farm-to-table strategy is, according to critics, far from current farming practice.
Some of the farm-to-table strategy: halving pesticide use, 20 percent less fertilizer and tripling the organic agricultural area. The percentages apply to Europe as a whole. “We are not happy with this,” says LTO board member Dirk Bruins in the studio of Nieuwe harvest.tv.
