Abstract: A unique data set of the applications of plant variety protection (PVP), morphological characteristics of plants, and institutional sources of all important varieties of rice in three provinces of China have been used to estimate the determinants of PVP applications in China (China passed its Plant Variety Protection Act (PVPA) in 1997). Evidence suggests that both government and private research programmes are responding to economic and policy incentives and investing in plant variety protection as expected by economists. Analysis of the evolution of seed industry suggested that the combination of the new seed law in 2000 and the new plant variety protection regulation has changed the structure of seed industry and provided an important incentive to invest in PVPs both by public research institutes and commercial firms. Finally, there is also some preliminary evidence that private firms have lesser incentives in developing new varieties in contrast to purchasing new varieties.
