Summary

When fertilizing soil beds and tubs where the growth medium is not changed before sowing or planting, 50% of the total nitrogen should come from organic production. The additional part of the total nitrogen must comply with EU Regulation 2092/91.

Difference

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

Justification

EU regulation 2092/91 does not cover greenhouse production as specific area. The requirements to the origin of fertilizers should be defined.
