Honeybee homicide case against Syngenta pesticide unproven


  LONDON | Fri Sep 21, 2012 11:50am BST

(Reuters) - British scientists have shot down a study on declining 
honeybee populations that triggered a French ban on a pesticide made by 
Swiss agrochemicals group Syngenta.


The research was apparently initiated by DEFRA.
Is DEFRA so dependent on Syngenta´s thiamethoxam?

Only scratching the surface slightly ...

This is what Exeter Uni website itself says:

Syngenta Bioline

In September 2009, the University completed a 10 year exclusive licence 
deal with Syngenta Bioline Ltd in relation to a patent for an 
anti-fungal/anti-microbial agent for use in crop-protection (a massive 
global issue). In return, the University will receive a percentage 
revenue share of any global sales of product deriving from this 
Intellectual Property.

note: the Website data could change as it has been the case with the 
queen bee´s info a Rothamstead Reasearch [2]

The queen bee, Juliet Osborne, herself, left Syngenta funded and run 
Rothamsted Research in summer to go to Exeter [3] !
One wonders what ´Farm Scale Evaluation of GM crops´ as listed as one 
of her interests is?

[2] Oh well Rothamstead Research has now removed he inelegant Webpage 
they were hosting for some time on their long term staff Osborne
