The organisation is collaborating with several groups representing farmers and growers, including COPA-COCEGA, a Brussels-based organisation which campaigns on behalf of 15 million people in all EU member states.
In the past few months it looked as though organisations in the UK were the single voice speaking out against the proposals on plant protection products registration.
But chairman of COPA-COGECA, Luc Peeters, told the pesticides conference at Stockbridge Technology Centre that groups on the Continent are beginning to agitate against the proposals.
He said French growers will be holding a press conference in Brussels to get MEPs to become more involved. "But there is a big difference between the grower's views and the official position. It seems as if the French government has the toughest position on this legislation - it wants to push it across Europe as soon as possible."
The Netherlands and Belgium recently carried out an impact assessment on the products which will be affected under the new law.
