EFSA has completed its assessments of emergency authorizations granted by 11 EU Member States for the use of neonicotinoid-based insecticides on sugar beet in 2020 and 2021, and has concluded that in all cases the emergency authorizations were justified, either because no alternative products or methods – chemical or non-chemical – were available or because there was a risk that the pest could become resistant to available alternative products.
