MPS-Natural Protected is a combination of MPS-ABC and MPS-ProductProof. The MPS-Natural Protected certificate is the highest level a grower can achieve within MPS-ProductProof. MPS-ProductProof makes the use of active substances entirely transparent.
Record keeping and sampling prove that the active substances used are permitted in organic production. Growers participating in MPS-ProductProof who are capable of doing so, will be awarded with the MPS-Natural Protected certificate.
To achieve the MPS-Natural Protected certificate you need to:
• Be MPS-A certified as a minimum
• Be a participant in and meet the requirements of MPS-ProductProof
• You are only allowed to use crop protection products that are permitted in organic production (appendix A of the certification scheme)
• Only permitted products may be used for cleaning and disinfection of buildings and installations (appendix B of the certification scheme)
