The article presents the reactions of several professionals from horticulture concerning the European Union (EU) vote on pesticides legislation. Graham Ward notes that the legislation would impact on cost of agricultural production. John Adlam suggests the need to think very carefully about how to help growers produce crops. Jerry Cross argues that the lack of definition for endocrine disruptors means some uncertainty and the situation is more negative for fungicides.
