The single biggest cost of the EU is still the CAP which shows no sign of going away because French farmers refuse to innovate.
Nothing to do with that (and these days not really true anyway). France has something like 17% of the EUs agricultural land and 17% of the EUs agricultural output so gets about 17% of the CAP.

Given the extent of insect armageddon, I would be very happy if farmers actually were more likely to refuse to innovate in the direction I'm pretty sure you mean.
