Summary

Areas where potted plants are arrayed for storage and sale should not be sealed. (NL standards on production, Part B.V.Cultivation of ornamental plants, herbaceous perennials, shrubs, Christmas trees, 6. Sealing of the soil)

Difference

The NATURLAND standard has a broader scope. This aspect is not regulated in the EU Regulation 2092/91.

Justification

This aspect refers to the ecological principle of organic agriculture. Wherever soil is sealed the natural water cycle is interrupted and disturbed.
