The European Commission yesterday announced new targets for reducing sales of antibiotics used on farms and in aquaculture.

The targets, part of the Commission’s Farm to Fork Strategy for a fair, healthy, and environmentally friendly food system, call for a 50% reduction in sales of antibiotics for farmed animals and aquaculture in European Union member states by 2030. The strategy also calls for a 50% reduction in pesticide use, a 20% reduction in the use of fertilizers, and for making 25% of agricultural land organic by 2030.
