Plant patents

Plant patents protect new varieties of plants that can be reproduced asexually by grafting or crossbreeding rather than by planting seeds. The new variety can be different from previous plants in its resistance to disease or drought or in its scent, appearance, color, or productivity. Thus, a new color for a rose or a new type of hybrid vegetable would be eligible for plant patent protection. The term for plant protection is 20 years from the date of the original application.
