Peat is listed in Appendix 1 on the positive list, but may not be used for soil conditioning


EU Regulation 2092/91 only lists peat as admitted 'fertilizer' limited to horticulture (market gardening, floriculture, arboriculture, nursery), whereas IFOAM restricts the application by excluding soil conditionning.


No justification was given.
