Who is InfoXgen?

We are a professional organisation for the evaluation and publication of inputs for organic and GMO-free production. InfoXgen was founded in 2001 as an association by inspection bodies from Austria, Switzerland and Germany.

As of 1 January 2018, InfoXgen Inputs Evaluation (InfoXgen Betriebsmittelbewertung), a division of EASY-CERT services GmbH, took over the operative activities for the evaluation of organic inputs as well as all previous activities of the association. All provisions and rates as laid down in the General Terms and Conditions apply. 

Areas of activity - organic inputs

InfoXgen maintains a network of international contacts, but its activities are centred in Austria.

An essential part of InfoXgen’s work is focused on the evaluation of farm inputs on the basis of the EU Organic Regulation currently in force to determine whether they are suitable for use in organic farming.

The products evaluated by InfoXgen can be accessed via the organic input product search (Produktsuche) on this website.

A catalogue of inputs for organic farming with a circulation of 22,000 copies is published and distributed to all organic enterprises in Austria once a year.

The target groups of our service are:

• Producers or distributors who produce or trade inputs (cleaning agents, disinfectants, pesticides and fertilisers) for organic agriculture in Austria and wish to obtain a professional and independent assessment of their products and to publish them in a manner appropriate for their target groups.

• Organic farmers who want to make sure that they only use inputs that have been approved for organic farming.

• Organic inspection bodies that rely on our professional evaluation in their daily work.

GM-free feed search

GM-free food production also plays an important role in the conventional sector in Austria. Therefore, feeds that are suitable for the production of GM-free foods are also listed in the InfoXgen database. They can be accessed via the feed search (Futtermittelsuche) on this website.

Biologisch gärtnern ("organic gardening")

This quality label was created in order to make it easier for all gardeners with private house gardens and allotment gardens to search for products that are environmentally friendly and as gentle as possible for plants, animals and humans.

This initiative is by InfoXgen, DIE UMWELTBERATUNG (an environmental consultation organisation) and the company biohelp Garten&Bienen.

A "biologisch gärtnern" product search was created in cooperation with DIE UMWELTBERATUNG. It can be found under the following link https://www.umweltberatung.at/biologisch-gaertnern-produktdatenbank
