As of January 1, France has declared pesticide-free zones or non-treatment zones that prohibit the application of pesticides within a certain radius of homes depending on crop size. This comes as a response to significant public outcry for stricter regulations on pesticides to curb the harmful side effects they can cause. But this also has the farming community scrambling to figure out how to care for their crops that fall within what is now deemed a pesticide-free zone.
