|Abstract:||With the increased investment from private sector in agriculture, IPR in plant varieties has become a matter of debate and discussion. Several legislations have been formulated from time to time in compliance with various national and international obligations. The PPV&FR Act, 2001 was formulated in accordance with Article 27.3(b) of TRIPS Agreement, 1995. The present study focuses on development in Indian agriculture with reference to IPR granted under the Act. The study also analyses and determines the focus of public and private sector research and the trend of early filing for grant of IPR in both public and private sector. The awareness of the PPV&FR Act among farmers, the custodians of traditional varieties, is also determined by trend analysis of farmers’ variety applications received from various states across India. Based on trend analysis, the technology trend in plant varieties protected under the Act is highlighted.|
