Summary

Under Nature et Progres standards, when the farmer starts the conversion period, he has 5 years to get the whole farm certified organic.

Difference

Nature et Progres standards require that ultimately the whole production of the farm be organic, whereas the EU Regulation 2092/91 accepts the presence of non-organic productions.

Justification

Presence of organic and conventional products on the same farm is not consistent and a source of potential fraud or accidental pollution. However, each farmer needs time to adapt his farm system and therefore five years are given to satisfy this obligation.
