Economic impact of plant breeder's rights

This report was designed to get a better understanding of users of our plant breeder's rights (PBR) system and the impact of PBR.

Summary

The Economic Impact of Plant Breeder’s Rights in Australia report was commissioned to get a better understanding of the users of our PBR system and the economic impact of PBR.

It found that a little more than half of PBR applications are from non-Australian residents, that most Australian firms with PBR don't apply for plant-related patents and that PBR is most likely to have an impact when output and yield growth is high.
