Welcome to the Input list for organic production in Germany

What is the Input list?

The Input list in Germany contains products (e.g. fertilizer, plant protection agents, animal feed, etc.), which have been evaluated by experts of FiBL Projekte GmbH for their compliance with the principles of organic production regarding their usability in Germany.

The Input List benefits all parties

✓ Benefits for Organic Farmers and processors

The Input List is a robust, trustworthy, user-friendly and easily accessible tool for organic production. Organic Farmers and processors can consult the Input List for free in order to find out about products that comply with the rules for organic production and have been transparently evaluated by the Input List technical experts.

✓ Benefits for Authorities, Control Bodies and Policy Makers

National authorities, control bodies as well as policy makers clearly take advantage of the Input List as it provides the baseline for the input quality control system at no cost.

✓ Benefits for Organic Input Manufacturers and distributors

Manufacturers and traders of inputs for organic production have an interest in demonstrating that their products have been evaluated by an independent organization and found to comply with the organic production rules. The Input List provides transparent information about compliant products. Furthermore, it provides a single entry point for input manufacturers to access different European Union Member states’ markets.

Important note

The Input list does not claim to be complete. Products which are not listed can be used in principle, provided that they are permissible according to the European legal regulations for organic production and possibly the association requirements (Biokreis, Bioland, Demeter, ECOVIN, Gäa, Naturland). In case of doubt, the control body, the competent authority and/or the association shall decide whether a non-listed product may be used. If products other than those listed are used, the operator himself must check whether they comply with the regulation and, if necessary, provide proof of production without using genetic engineering.

The products in the input list are no recommendation for use. They are evaluated for their compliance with the principles of organic production. A verification regarding their effectiveness, e.g. for plant strengthening agents or cleaning agents, does not occur and is no criteria for listing.

The use of any inputs in organic production is always the responsibility of the user. The general and legal regulations for use and application of the listed products are reserved. All information is provided without guarantee. FiBL Projekte GmbH disclaims all liability related to the use of the listed products.
