Summary

Relevant measures should be taken to prevent or remedy soil and water salination.(2.2.5)

Difference

EU Regulation 2092/91 does not address the problem of salination, while IFOAM requires measures to prevent salination.

Justification

Water salination is a irreversible damage to a common resource and therefore does not correspond with the general principles of organic agriculture.

EU Regulation

Annex I. Principles of organic production and processing > Care of environment - not in EC Reg > Soil and water conservation
