Summary

The minimum share of legumes in the crop rotation is 20% (with exemptions). (NL standards on production, Part B.I. Plant production 7.)

Difference

In the EU Regulation 2092/91 legumes are required in the crop rotation as a measure to maintain and increase the soil fertility. A minimum share is not indicated like it is in Naturland

Justification

The incorporation of legumes in the crop rotation is a vital element to ensure the long-term fertility of the soil.
