Summary

A Naturland producer contract implies the obligation to convert and apply the standards on all areas of a farm, managed under the responsibility of one farm manager. (NL standards on production 2005: Part A.I.2.Producer contract)

Difference

The NATURLAND standard requires conversion of the whole farm whreas the EU Regulation 2092/91 allows the conversion of separated farm units.

Justification

Whole farm conversion is required in order to reduce the danger of contamination or fraud and to safeguard organic integrity.
