Report from the main commitee

Committee on assessing the overall consequences of a partial or totalphasing-out of pesticide use


In the autumn of 1997, the Minister for Environment and Energy appointed a committee to assess the overall consequences of phasing out the use of pesticides (the Bichel Committee). The Committee was established with a Main Committee and four expert sub-committees. The Main Committee has had the task of co-ordinating and discussing the work of the sub-committees and of drafting this report for the Minister. This report is based on the reports of the four expert sub-committees and of an interdisciplinary group of members drawn from the four sub-committees, to whom the task of assessing the consequences of a complete restructuring for organic production was given.
