Reducing agricultural inputs in France

Just read a news piece describing French government plans to reduce agricultural chemical inputs in France over the next few years. I don't know how much impact this series of measures will have, but it seems like sensible policy, embracing both organics and integrated farming approaches. While the announcement applies to all forms of agriculture, viticulture is affected more than most because of its high use of pesticides and fungicides.

Our local Carrefour has had a run on sandals and barbers are closing down left right and centre in France.

On a more serious note. It sounds like a very good and worthwhile policy....sorry to all bearded people....nowt wrong with sandals too.
