A pesticide believed to harm bees won’t be used in England, after it had been approved for temporary use in January.
The government had authorised the emergency use of a product containing the chemical thiamethoxam, because of a virus which affected sugar beet seeds.
But that protection won’t be needed now, as the colder weather means there’s less risk to the crop.
