argylesock reblogged this on Science on the Land and commented:

argylesock says... I'm not sure which neonic Syngenta wants to bring back here in Europe. Maybe all of the three which are temporarily banned: clothianidin, imidacloprid and thiamethoxam. [Edit] Soon after this story broke, I'm feeling cynical about it. Maybe Syngenta decided not to fight the neonic ban because it's only a temporary ban. Also, Syngenta is busy lobbying for its interests as the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) draws closer to becoming real. [Edit again] Maybe the story was this one: Syngenta and Bayer challenged the European neonic ban. Syngenta requested an exemption for autumn-sown oilseed rape (Brassica napus) in 2014, but soon withdrew that request.
