Summary

No tropical woods can be used as supporting material. Tropical or sub-tropical woods may not be used as supporting material. The tropical grasses, bamboo and tonkin are permissible. (Bioland production standards, 5.5.3 Supporting Material; Bioland production standards, 5.6.2 Supporting Material )

Difference

The BIOLAND standard is more detailed. The EU Regulation 2092/91 does not refer to the use of supporting materials in orchards and viticulture.

Justification

In order not to contribute to the destruction of ecosystems in the tropics. This aspect refers to the holistic and ecological approach of organic farming.
