ABSTRACT
The author argues that political leaders need to lobby for the reintroduction of the tried and tested natural method of weed and disease control in the wake of the impending European Union (EU) legislation which will ban the use of essential pesticides. She commends the effort of the "Farmers Weekly" Save Our Sprays campaign. She notes the effectiveness of the natural method in keeping crop diseases and difficulties at bay. She asserts that the method may not be the solution but it is one of the tools needed when effective solutions are taken away.
