What is Plant Variety Protection (PVP)
& What is a Plant Breeder's Right (PBR)?

The UPOV Convention provides the basis for members to encourage plant breeding by granting breeders of new plant varieties an intellectual property right: the breeder's right.

In the case of a variety protected by a breeder's right, the authorization of the breeder is required to propagate the variety for commercial purposes.

The breeder's right is granted by the individual UPOV members.
