This protection is represented by the Government and its implementation is carried out by the Plant Variety Protection Office for plant varieties produced by plant breeders through breeding activities.
Plant Variety Protection is a special protection provided by the state.
Plant Variety Protection offers to balance the benefits with the original investment.
Developing a successful plant variety requires years, if not decades, to bear fruition, yet not all new plant varieties are guaranteed success. To recover the expenses, the breeders may seek protection to obtain exclusive ownership of the new variety.
