Ban toxic farm chemicals
A meeting next week will decide the immediate future of powerful chemicals paraquat, chlorpyrifos and glyphosate, aka Roundup, which should be banned.
In a media interview, a source at the Department of Agriculture and Agricultural Cooperatives Ministry said this week there was a possibility the state might not impose a ban but choose "to limit use or impose stricter regulations" on these herbicides.
Such a stance, while upsetting, hardly comes as a surprise to anyone.
