Red Tractor Crops and Sugar Beet Scheme finally approved by European Commission.

July 17, 2012 |

In Brussels, the Red Tractor Scheme has finally been approved by the European Commission. This official status will ensure crops with the badge of Red Tractor Assurance can access all European markets without the need for additional audits or paperwork and will prevent the need for multiple schemes for different markets. The Red Tractor Crops and Sugar Beet Scheme standards incorporate small changes to existing environmental impact standards in order to fulfill the European Union’s Renewable Energy Directive requirements, which aim to protect high-carbon and highly-biodiverse land areas. Relevant information and proof of land use is checked and recorded as part of the annual farm inspection.
