What do the standards say about spray drift?

If organic crops are growing next to non-organic crops our licensees must provide an effective windbreak. If there is not an effective windbreak in place our licensees must establish a buffer zone of at least 10m between organic crops and the source of contamination. This will be increased to a least 20m if crops are next to sprayed orchards. Crops within the buffer zone must not be sold as organic.
