New plant varieties are continually being developed and innovated for more excellent harvests, better traits, stronger resistance against pest or diseases and higher tolerance to drought conditions. As a result, these new plant varieties developed by farmer and breeders should be protected given that substantial investment in effort, cost, and skills have been incurred.
Plant Variety Protection (PVP) is a form of Intellectual Property rights that gives plant breeders the exclusive rights to exploit their respective new plant varieties and pursue their innovation towards developing new plant varieties.
