EU - Webinar & CIOPORA coop: Growers’ Guide to Intellectual Property Protection for Plants

For centuries, humans have relied on plant breeding for improving crops to achieve the needs and desires of humankind. Plant breeding can help growers achieve higher yields, even in smaller growing areas.

Breeding also contributes to sustainable production by improving plant health and drought resistance. Yet, the development of plant novelties requires considerable investments by breeders. IP Protection provides breeders with an incentive to continue developing new varieties, which benefit the green value chain and society.
