Summary

The vineyard must be land-planted throughout the year, in order to provide a habitat for diverse flora and fauna. Species-rich mixtures should be sown. Land planting may be interrupted for up to 2 months for soil preparation, for winter furrowing of heavy soils, loosening of the soil, new sowing, summer drought and in new plantings. No land planting is necessary directly under the vines. (BA-Rules 2006 chapter 4.4.1)

Difference

The Bio Austria General Standard is more detailed as the EU Regulation 2092/91 does not have specific requirements for land planting in vineyards.

Justification

Green coverage reduces erosion.

EU Regulation
