French Researchers Find Glyphosate Link to Breast Cancer, Leads to More Aggressive Cancer, Also Strikes Younger Women

I missed this study when it first came out, but am glad to share it this week since it's an important chapter in the medical detective novel about herbicides that we are living in the middle of.

Time for France to ban 100% désherbage in vineyards

The coronavirus crisis ought to be an opportunity to reassess. Regarding viticulture it is surely time to ban the indiscriminate use of weedkiller in vineyards. Completely blitzing a vineyard ought to be now completely unacceptable.

Mouton Cadet in search of the Holy Grail of ‘zero pesticide residue’

“For our ninetieth harvest, all Mouton Cadet winegrowers are HVE (High Environmental Value) certified”, announced Véronique Hombroekx, CEO of Baron Philippe de Rothschild (BPR) brands. “We have seen our commitments through, despite sometimes challenging situations”, stressed Hombroekx, who manages Bordeaux’s first wine brand, launched in 1930. Hombroekx has already announced that “this is just a preliminary stage and we will be taking it further” with the company’s 250 partner winegrowers, who are under three-year contracts and specifications, and their 1,500 hectares of vines spread across 10 appellations in Bordeaux.

Disparaging Bordeaux wines costs an anti-agrochemical association €125,000

Disparaging Bordeaux wines costs an anti-agrochemical association €125,000

On 25 February, the civil division of the Libourne court of justice condemned the “Alerte Aux Toxiques” (AAT) association and its spokesperson, Valérie Murat, to 125,000 euros for disparaging Bordeaux wines. The hard-hitting and immediately enforceable ruling sanctions AAT's messages on 15 September 2020, which denounced the occurrence of 28 plant protection residues in 22 wines, mainly Bordeaux certified High Environmental Value (HVE). “The written statements were widely distributed and accompanied by slogans that lacked restraint. They unequivocally constitute wrongful defamation”, says the civil chamber ruling accessed by Vitisphere.

Pesticide residue-free trust mark gains traction

Pesticide residue-free trust mark gains traction

Launched in 2018, the ‘pesticide residue-free’ endorsement supported by the ‘Nouveaux Champs’ collective of French producers and livestock farmers, has plenty to celebrate. In a recent press release, the group of “committed producers” reported that nearly 30% of the French have become familiar with the endorsement in just three years. The recognition allows this civic trust mark to continue to make headway with consumers.

Organic pesticide copper sulfate—unlike glyphosate—is a carcinogen, kills beneficial insects, decimates soil, pollutes water. It also works. Here are political and science reasons why regulators give it a free pass

Europe is currently in a frenzy trying to drum up enough support to dramatically rollback approvals of targeted synthetic pesticides, the backbone of conventional agriculture. Leveraging the ongoing public debate about the pending new Green Deal and Farm to Fork policies, activists are calling for tighter restrictions and in some cases outright bans. Last month, Switzerland came close to banning synthetic pesticides, and the measure is sure to get resurrected.

Chemical weeding banned in the vineyards of Pomerol
02 November 2021 14:36
Chemical weeding banned in the vineyards of Pomerol

“Chemical weeding is banned. Mechanical or physical control of grass cover in vineyards is mandatory”. The wording of new specifications for producing Pomerol appellation wines – validated by a decree published on October 20 – is nothing if not terse. “In 2008, Pomerol included a ban on total weed control in its specifications as a minimum requirement. We intend to stay ahead of the curve with this latest ban on all forms of weeding”, explains appellation chairman Jean-Marie Garde, who goes on to stress that “in Pomerol, almost everyone uses tillage or grass cover. We are ready for this, it is a collective decision”. While acknowledging that the ban entails extra costs, which can be absorbed by a prestigious and prized appellation, but is more challenging for other wine regions, Garde claims, “we must be a driving force”.
