Breederplants is an organization that aims to protect and introduce plant varieties. Protecting new plants is a unique field, and Breederplants happens to be a specialist in this field.
New varieties are not just simply found or created, this requires years of hard work. The European plant variety rights (or Community plant variety rights) were created to help protect breeders’ and growers’ varieties. This means that you, the breeder or grower, determines who is and who is not permitted to grow certain varieties. Breeders also receive a fee for allowing other parties to grow their varieties. This fee is set by the breeder. Handling all these matters can be a time-consuming effort. And, because you have more important matters to deal with at the nursery, or may want to breed a new species, there are agencies who can represent your interests. Breederplants is one such agency that specialized in European plant variety rights.
