Summary

The use of copper substances as plant protection products is not allowed in organic production.

Difference

The EU Regulation 2092/91 permits copper preparates (with restrictions).

Justification

Copper preparates are an environmental strain and the use should be restricted. There are no productions in Norway where the use of copper preparates is crucial.

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
