The AEEP delivered a presentation today to the EPP Working Group on the New Fertilizer Regulation. The EPP Working Group has been created to coordinate the policy of EPP MEPs from various EP committees handling this dossier (IMCO, AGRI, ENVI & INTA).
AEEP focused its presentation on helping MEPs understand the problems to security of supply of phosphate rock and phosphate fertilizers if cadmium limits are set too low. Other speakers included Fertilizers Europe, European Biostimulants Industry Council (EBIC) and the European Consortium on Organic-Based Fertilizer.
