The European Union (EU) has extended the ban of Nigeria’s beans till June 2022.
It could be recalled that in January 2013, the European Union (EU) temporary banned the imports of dried beans from Nigeria..



The ban became necessary due to the excessive use of chemicals by Nigerian farmers to control a pest, Maruca vitrata, from damaging crops on the field.

These farmers were also found to be using excessive chemicals and pesticides in the preservation of beans without thinking about the effect it will have on human health.

The ban was later extended in 2015 till June 2019 only for the banned to extended till 2021. This new ban means that beans from Nigeria cannot be sent to Europe till June 2022.
