The Czech Environment Ministry is up in arms over a decision by the Central Institute for Supervision and Testing in Agriculture allowing farmers to use a highly toxic rat poison in fields, orchards, meadows and vineyards. They claim it will "harm all living things in the vicinity", a warning that has made the agriculture minister break off his holiday and come back to Prague for emergency talks.
