Summary

No forms of copper are allowed in the Netherlands: see also at www.ctb-wageningen.nl

Difference

In contrast to NL the EU Regulation 2092/91 lists in Annex II part B several permissable copper preparations

Justification

Organic farming principles say that the use of pesticides etc. should be avoided. The use of copper should therefore, from the Dutch government's point of view, not be allowed in Europe or at least be restricted.

EU Regulation

Annex II. Permitted substances for the production of organic foods > Substances for plants and plant production - Annex 2 > Pesticides/Substances for plant pest and disease control - Annex II B
