The Canadian Seed Trade Association (CSTA), has launched www.PBRfacts.ca. This new website was created by CSTA with input from the Plant Breeders’ Rights Office at the CFIA and from intellectual property specialists. It is meant to inform those stakeholders along the value chain who need to be aware of the new requirements created by the expanded breeder’s right.
The site contains specific and focused information for farmers, seed retailers, seed conditioners and buyers of harvested material (grain). It also has a page dedicated to questions and answers and will give access to fact sheets, presentations and other material designed to inform and build awareness.
