Winemaker Facing Jail Time, $41,000 Fine for Lack of Pesticide Use

vineyardYou might think that not using pesticides when growing foodstuff would be rewarded, but the French government has a different view. According to the New York Times, an organic winemaker in Burgundy, France, has been accused of breaking the law for not using a particular type of pesticide. Emmanuel Giboulot could go to jail for up to six months and be fined $41,000 for what the government has deemed to be wrongdoing. Pyrevert is a neurotoxin that is used to fight bacteria caused by insects, however Giboulet says that his vines showed no evidence of disease and that the pesticide is known to kill good insects. 

Do you think he should be fined and serve jail time?
