  • EU Fertilizing Product Regulation for Biostimulants - Current State of Play & Next Steps  

    2018-08-29

    Until now, European biostimulant manufacturers have been faced with a fragmented European market, forcing them to navigate different sets of national rules and regulations to penetrate each local market individually. Mineral fertilizers and liming materials were only covered in the 2003 regulations, so other fertilizing materials like biostimulants, organic fertilizers and growing media could only be placed on the market according to national rules. However, things are about to change with the implementation of an updated fertilizing products regulation that will cover the full range of fertilizing products, including plant biostimulants to be sold under one set of rules across 34 countries.
