Bees still vex agchem makers

May 31, 2004 | APPEARED IN VOLUME 82, ISSUE 22

France has suspended marketing of Bayer's agrochemical imidacloprid, marketed under the trade name Gaucho, for applications on corn in that country. The basis of the action is concern over effects on honeybees (C&EN, April 19, page 16).

Investigations have shown the product to be safe to bees, the company says.
