New Study Exposes Range of Harm from Neonicotinoid Pesticides (Beyond Pesticides, June 18, 2013)   Soil half-life of the most commonly used seed treatments can range from 200- 1000 days. Clothianidin has the potential to remain in soil for 6,931 days (nearly 19 years!) before degrading .“Studies from the US suggest that neonicotinoid seed dressings may be either entirely ineffective or cost more than the benefit in crop yield gained from their use. We seem to be in a situation where farmers are advised primarily by agronomists involved in selling them pesticides.” says Dr Gouslon.

Pesticide Factsheets (NCAP) These fact sheets detail health effects of pesticides. Not all pesticides on the market are coveredbecause so little independent research exists for most of them. The chemicals covered are (or were at the time of the writing) widely used with enough independent research.
