Summary

Apiaries shall be sited with preference on biodynamically or organically managed or uncultivated land. The biodynamic preparations should be applied regularly in the surroundings of the hives. (DI production standards, 2. The Siting of Apiaries)

Difference

The DI standard is similar. The EU Regulation 2092/91, however, does not regulate the application of the biodynamic preparations.

Justification

The application of the biodynamic preparations is a vital element of Demeter certified agricultural production.
