F1 SeedTech has reached a remarkable milestone with the gaining of Dutch Plant Breeder Rights for our varieties, Miss Beauty F1 and Eugenius F1. These rights, bestowed by the Dutch Plant Variety Board, underscore the innovative approach of F1 SeedTech in developing seed-based plant varieties, particularly in the burgeoning field of Cannabis cultivation.
What are Plant Breeder Rights?
Plant Breeder Rights are a form of intellectual property rights that protect new varieties of plants. These rights are granted to breeders who have developed new, distinct, uniform, and stable plant varieties. The rights provide the breeder with exclusive control over the propagating material (including seed, cuttings, divisions, etc.) of the new plant variety.
