Provisional Agreement on New EU Fertilising Product Regulation reached This regulation will support farmers to use more organic fertilisers

This regulation will support farmers to use more organic fertilisers and this will contribute to the environment. Using artificial fertilisers needs a lot of energy for production. With this legislation we create a win-win situation for farmers, the citizens and the environment. It will support the health of citizens by production of healthier food from healthier soils.
Encouraging the use of the recycled organic products contributes to the Circular Economy. Today, only 5 % of organic products are recycled and used as organic fertilising products in Europe. With the adoption of this legislation the farmers will have access to a large range of natural fertilisers.
The provisional agreement of this regulation in the European Parliament is a great step forward to realise a circular economy in Europe’ said Stefanie Siebert, executive director of the European Compost Network. ‘The new regulation will open the European market for innovative and recycled organic fertilising products, like compost and digestate. Harmonised criteria and mandatory limits for all fertilising products will make farming more sustainable and will protect human health and the environment.
