Summary

In vineyards land planting with a planting mixture (green manure) appropriate to the location is required throughout the most part of the year. Land planting may be interrupted for up to 2 months in special cases.

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 is required to reduce erosion.

EU Regulation

Annex I. Principles of organic production and processing > A.Plant and plant products > Special plant production standards - not in EC Reg
