Summary

Clearing of primary ecosystems is prohibited.(2.1.2)

Difference

EU Regulation 2092/91 does not address this matter.

Justification

Clearing of primary or high value conservation areas is an increasing problem in agriculture. Organic farming loses its credibility if such systems are cleared in order to establish organic plots instead.
