The basis of fertilization is the spreading of the farms own manure to support soil life and increase the humus content. (Bioland production standards, 3.5.1 Basic Principles)

Difference

The BIOLAND standard requires own manure basis for each farm, while there is no recommendation in the EU Regulation 2092/91 to have own manure as a basis of fertilization.

Justification

The aim is to ensure the recycling of organic matter on the farm and build up a sustainable system to maintain and increase soil fertility.
