2017-10-23 11:02:19 Organic winemaker Christian Sabate, drives a tractor fitted with a weeding machine through the vines of the Chateau Fontbaude, which produces Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux designation wine, on October 23, 2017, in Saint-Magne-de-Castillon, southwestern France, as he weeds the crops mechanically and without herbicides. Experts from the 28 member states of the European Union are due to vote on October 25, 2017, on the European Commission recommendation to renew the license for the herbicide glyphosate for ten years in mid-December. Research from the World Health Organization concluded the weedkiller, produced by chemicals giant Monsanto and others, may cause cancer, and opponents too the chemical are calling for an outright ban. / AFP PHOTO / MEHDI FEDOUACH AlgemeenAchtergrond
