US Plant Patents
A Patent is a limited right granted by a government, allowing the inventor to control the reproduction, use or sale of a specifically defined invention.
In the United States, patent protection is extended to new plant varieties, developed from breeding programs, or discovered in cultivated areas.
There are important deadlines to be met and protocols to be followed to successfully obtain a US plant patent. We are happy to speak confidentially with you regarding your new variety.
Plant Patents are valid in the United States for 20 years from the filing date, without maintenance fees.
