Summary

Operators should take measures to maintain and improve landscape and enhance biodiversity quality.(2.1.)

Difference

Where as IFOAM requires a significant portion of the farm to be dedicated to facilitate biodiversity, no similar pargraph is quoted in the EU Regulation 2092/91.

Justification

A diversified landscape underlines the individuality of the farm and supports the prosperous development of beneficials within the farm considered as an organism.
