Summary

In northern climates no tropical or sub tropical woods are allowed for use as support stakes to reduce environmental impact. The tropical grasses, bamboo and tonkin, may be used. (DI production standards, 3.5.4. support stakes)

Difference

The DI standard has a broader scope; the EU Regulation 2092/91 does not regulate this aspect.

Justification

In order to reduce environmental impact within the tropics.
