Response to Bayer

In reference to Bayer's response, dated October 17th 2015, to the Ad-Hoc Monitoring Report [...] we wish to discuss further the following points and request related information. The first issue we wish to address is that of label and leaflet requirements and the assertion in the response letter that Bayer CropScience India adheres to national and international best practices... Secondly, we wish to address the assertions in the response letter that regular farmer training and awareness programs are held... A further area that was covered extensively in the report but not mentioned in the response letter is that of monitoring... We look forward to hearing back from you [...] in the hope of building a constructive discussion on the reality of the situation faced by the farming community in Punjab... It is on the basis of specific information only that any multi-stakeholder meeting can actually address the problems as they are on the ground and develop appropriate solutions.
