Flemish government approves ban on glyphosate for individualsSaturday, 01 July 2017 05:49
The Flemish Environment Minister, Joke Schauvliege, had suggested early in the year that she wanted to ban glyphosate under a precautionary principle. The US chemical giant, Monsanto, has indeed influenced scientific studies to avoid the substance being classified as carcinogenic.
Last Wednesday, the Flemish parliament approved the decretal basis for the ban, and the government has now given its approval for a decree to concretise this ban. It is not yet known when it will come into force.
The use of glyphosate by private individuals has been prohibited since 1 June in Wallonia. Brussels did the same last year.
