Farmers and pesticides: the field of sacrifice

Each year, 7,000 tonnes of pesticides are sprayed onto Belgian fields, making the country the third most important user of phytosanitary products in Europe. Are farmers aware of the risks they run? How do they protect themselves? "#Investigation" heads to the farms of Wallonia in search of answers.
Report by François Corbiau and Stéphanie De Smedt for "#Investigation", the RTBF magazine programme.

Guests: François Corbiau, independent journalist; Michel Darbellay, board member of the Swiss Farmers Union.

Presented by: Dominique Laresche.
