Following the conclusions of the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) in March, the NFU is continuing to work with members and with other European farming unions to ensure the facts about glyphosate’s safety and importance are heard in the run-up to the reauthorisation decision due from the European Commission later this year.
 
The overwhelming weight of evidence shows that glyphosate poses no risk to human health when used correctly. This opinion is shared by regulatory bodies around the world, including the World Health Organisation, the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the UN and the European Food Safety Authority.
