Summary

The application of fertilizers must not negatively affect either the quality of the product or the environment. (Bioland production standards, 3.5.5 Production of Quality and Environmental Compatibility)

Difference

The EU Regulation 2092/91 does not consider the product quality which can be influenced by fertilising. However it does require measures to avoid contamination of the soil.

Justification

To guarantee the production of high quality food. To avoid negative impacts on the environment.
