A debate on use of phytosanitary products and sustainable agriculture drew an attendance of more than a hundred people in Murcia last Thursday (May 19).

Organised by the company ProbelteFito, the forum was held under the title ‘Moving towards sustainable agriculture for healthy food’ and as live streamed on video.
In a press release, ProbelteFito said the forum surveyed the current regulatory framework for use of phytosanitary products at both Spanish and European level. A comparison was made with the applicable legislation in other countries considered competitors in the fruit and vegetables market.

Much of the debate revolved around the information that reaches the consumer, which was considered sufficient but sometimes confusing, since Spain has tight control on the use of phytosanitary products this message does not always get through to consumers. “This adds to confusion in regard to organic products when the impression is given that that other foods are not healthy though in reality phytosanitary products, as expressed during the forum, are the “medicines of plants”.

Moderated by food journalist Francisco Seva, the forum included participation from Francisco Jose Gonzalez, Abelardo Hernandez, Felipe Medina, Andrés Antonio Martinez and Joaquín Ignacio Martinez, and was closed by ProbelteFito president Jose Manuel Casanova.

With over 45 years of experience in the agrifood sector, Probelte is dedicated to the manufacture and marketing of phytosanitary products, including plant protection, fertiliser and related products.
