Summary

Farmers should undertake activities to protect soils from degradation, e.g. compaction and erosion (including 'green fields' approach). They should minimise water use in production processes. (1.3.1. ? 1.3.3.)

Difference

The EU Regulation 2092/91 does not cover the areas of water conservation and compaction of soils, while PL Ekoland has a paragraph on this topic.

Justification

Soil and water are limited resources of vital importance to farming and the whole society and thus must be carefully used and protected.
