Plant Breeder’s Rights

Plant Breeder’s Rights (PBR) are a form of intellectual property, like patents, trade marks and copyright. PBR confers exclusive commercial rights to breeders of new plant varieties, allowing a breeder the right to exclude others from a range of activities, including producing and reproducing a protected variety.
