Summary

Half of the nutrients for potted plants and in greenhouses shall come from the soil (KRAV standards paragraph 4.7.4).

Difference

This is not regulated in EU Regulation 2092/91.

Justification

It is the soil that should be fertilized and not the plants. This makes it impossible to grow in substrates with low biological activity.

EU Regulation

Annex I. Principles of organic production and processing > A.Plant and plant products > Special plant production standards - not in EC Reg
