Plants Varieties Act
The new Act, which comes to effect in late January, has been more than thirty years in the making and parts of it have been contentious.
For more background on the new legislation and what's in it, see this report from The PVR Office's Chris Barnaby, which ran in Commercial Horticulture Magazine, August/September 2021.
Note that the legislation was meant to have been passed last year, but was delayed by amendments put forward by the Opposition Parties, none of which succeeded, and court action.
