Analysts forecast "Global Pesticides market was $57.00 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach $88.82 billion by 2027 growing at 5.7% pa." Attempts to reduce pesticide use and move to more sustainable food production techniques are clearly failing. https://t.co/aOOR2d5rqg

Does the #CAP enhance #sustainability?
We think not and ask for CAP #indicators to measure #pesticide use reductions.
