Bayer wants the glyphosate herbicide to be extended for 15 years

The German chemical and pharmaceutical group Bayer wants the European Union (EU) to extend the authorization for 15 years to the herbicide glyphosate, produced by the American company Monsanto, and not five years ago. It has been approved.

Frankfurt (Germany), 28 Nov (EFE) .- The German chemical and pharmaceutical group Bayer wants the European Union (EU) to extend the authorization to the herbicide glyphosate for 15 years, which produces the Monsanto, and not five as has been approved.

Bayer said in a statement that "the five-year authorization seems to be the only possibility to allow farmers in Europe that have access to this important herbicide. "

The EU reached an agreement on Monday for the renewal of glyphosate license, with the support of 18 countries, including Germany.

Likewise the German company, which does not produce it but sells it and wants to acquire Monsanto, defends that the herbicide for the elimination of herbs and that does not affect crops genetically modified, it is safe, although some scientists consider it to be carcinogenic.

European agrarian organizations have manifested similarly in considering that the Five-year renewal of glyphosate authorization agreed by the EU is insufficient.

The European Commission (EC) today explained that it will formalize the decision to renew the license of the glyphosate on December 12, date in which it will also respond to the European Citizens' Initiative (ICE) registered to request its ban, promoted by organizations ecologists.

A community spokeswoman said that on that day the community executive "will present other related initiatives" with the controversial herbicide.
