|Title:||IPR Protection in Agriculture: An Overview|
|Keywords:||IPR;Agriculture;Plant variety protection;Patent;PPV & FR Act|
|Abstract:||Private rights in living objects have always been controversial. Agriculture provided the first wave in human civilization. Therefore, agriculture including plant breeding and agricultural methods pre-dated any form of IPR protection unlike industry and commerce. Traditionally, IPR was not applied to agriculture. In recent times, this position has changed and increasingly agriculture is seen as an industry that cannot survive without research and development and astute investments. This has made it necessary that IPR in all its forms be extended to agriculture.|
