Summary

In addition to the requirements in EU Regulation 2092/91 the conventional cultivation of rape or turnip rape in the flight/collection area should not represent more than 5% of the arable land within a radius of 3 km of the bee hive.

Difference

EU 2092/91 does not specify maximum percentage limits of special cultivars/crops in relation to the total arable land area.

Justification

Rape or turnip rape can be contaminated with GMO. The standard setting body wishes to minimalize the risk of contamination.
