Fruit cultivation, 1. Humus management and fertilization; Part B. VII. Viniculture and wine production 1. Treatment of the soil)

Difference

The NATURLAND standard is more specific as there is no such requirement of soil cover in the EU Regulation 2092/91.

Justification

To keep the soil covered with vegetation is a vital instrument to maintain and increase the soil fertility.
