Summary

When mixing new growth medium to the soil beds, tubs, pots and benches a minimum of 50% of the total nitrogen shall come from organic production. Additional ingredients and nutritional content must comply with the EU Regulation 2092/91. Organic soil can be used, and the nutritional content of the soil can be included as organic.

Difference

EU Regulation 2092/91 does not cover greenhouse production as specific area.

Justification

There is a need to specify conditions for the origin of nutritional content when adding growth medium in soil beds, tubs, pots and benches.
