Plant variety rights

Plant variety rights serve to protect new plant varieties and their registerable names. This provides the plant variety right-holder with the exclusive right to produce and sell the corresponding reproductive material (seeds or cuttings) for commercial purposes.

The protection of the plant name provided by the plant variety right can also be reinforced by acquiring trademark protection.
