Plant Variety

A  plant variety  protects the intellectual property on plant breedings. As breeder or discoverer of a new plant variety protection can be sought on the basis of the plant variety law by application to the German Federal Plant Variety Office. A plant variety can be protected if it is new, homogeneous, consistent and distinctive and in addition is denoted by a registerable variety name. The plant variety protection has the effect that only the owner of the plant variety or its legal successor is allowed to market, generate or import, for commercial purposes, reproduction material (plants or plant parts including seeds) of a protected plant variety.

If you have questions concerning the protection of plant varieties or if you wish to protect your plant variety, it will be our pleasure to assist you.
