Summary

Soil-less growing techniques are not allowed (DI production standards, 3.4.2. Manures, soils and potting mixes)

Difference

Where as Demeter International standards prohibit soil less production, the EU Regulation 2092/91 does not treat the issue of soil-less growing techniques.

Justification

It is considered that nutritional aspects develop best when the plants are in contact with soil.

EU Regulation

Annex I. Principles of organic production and processing > A.Plant and plant products > Special plant production standards - not in EC Reg
