In 2022, the fertiliser legislation for organic culture will be changed. DCM has therefore taken the initiative to start a working group for organic growers in the Biohuis. With its knowledge and experience, RHP joins the working group on fertiliser legislation for organic growers.
For a successful organic culture it is essential that the fertilisers and raw materials used are legally permitted and that an optimal culture result is achieved. In organic cultures the use of fertilisers is bound by the A/B standards. At the moment, at least 70% must have its origin from so-called A fertilisers and 30% from B fertilisers. For an optimal culture result, it is necessary that nutrients from organic fertilisers are released in the right way. That is certainly not automatically the case with all organic fertilisers. In order to influence, as a grower, the regulations regarding organic culture, it is important to have an official discussion about this in the Biohuis.
A working group is being set up in the Biohuis with Jan de Vries (Boot & Dart boomkwekerijen bv) as a chairman. RHP also joins this working group to share knowledge. The aim of the working group is to discuss the upcoming changes in legislation, for example about the permitted categories A and B fertilisers for non-soil-bound, organic cultures.
