Agricultures alternative approach to farming – France’s agroecology project
The Ecophyto plan
The aim of the Ecophyto plan is to reduce France’s dependency on pesticides products, while maintaining agricultural methods that are effective both ecologically and economically.
Consumers now expect products of high quality and in sufficient quantity. In June 2015, Stephane Le Foll, French Minister of Agriculture, Food and Forestry, announced an updated, more effective version of the Ecophyto plan.
