President Xie Shunxing had a discussion with Mr. AHN IN, one of the Korean delegates, on the relevant issues about PVR protection. President Xie well explained the scope of protected plant genera and species, filing fees & procedures of PVR application in China and relevant issues about Varieties Protection, to cater to their queries from Mr. AHN IN. During the conversation, a common conclusion has been carried out, Varieties protection does not only protect plant variety itself, but also need to protect the relevant fields in terms of planting methods, planting management skills, particular facilities, particular pesticide & fertilizer, and the brand of product by using patent and trademark rights. Breeder rights should not be infringed by fully utilizing thus entire protection system.
Mr. AHN IN also described the first listed PVR applications into Korea in year 2002, which is the first listed foreign application into Korea since the establishment of Seed Industry Law in 1998.
