Organic farming - new authorised inputs and extended exemption for non-organic hens and non-organic protein feed | Open Consultation 21 October 2020 - 18 November 2020
The proposed act provides an update on inputs to be allowed in organic production, on the basis of the most recent reports of the Expert Group for Technical Advice on Organic Production (EGTOP).
Due to a lack of organically reared pullets for egg production, and a lack of feed proteins, it extends for 1 year the exemption allowing the use of:
(*) non-organically reared pullets (for egg production)
(*) a maximum of 5% of non-organic protein feed for pig and poultry species.
