The answer was given by Ms Kyriakides on behalf of the European Commission
(7.4.2021)

The Farm to Fork Strategy was not preceded by an impact assessment as it was adopted in the form of a Commission Communication. The quantitative targets contained in the strategy, including the one on reduction of overall risk and use of chemical pesticides by 50% by 2030, are EU wide targets reflecting a political commitment.

Detailed impact assessments, including public consultations, will be performed in line with the ʽBetter Regulationʼ guidelines for any legislative initiative under the Farm to Fork Strategy, including those aiming at making any of the quantitative targets legally binding. These impact assessments will include an analysis of the potential consequences of each relevant legislative initiative.
