Plant variety rights

Who says money doesn't grow on trees?

Our PVR team have got it covered.  They understand plants, their genomics, physiology and culture.

Naturally they know how PVR rights differ around the world.  Plus, they know how to craft an intellectual property strategy using a ‘variety’ of intellectual property rights (not just PVR) that can protect new plant cultivators.

Let us help you harvest the rewards of your hard work.
