Title: Intellectual Property Rights in Sugarcane Research
Authors: Prajneshu, Meenakshi

Publisher: CSIR
Abstract:  The role of intellectual property rights (IPR) in agricultural R&D is becoming significant in view of liberalized economic policies of the Government of India. The paper considers emerging concepts of intellectual property rights in agriculture and presents a case study of patenting in sugarcane research. Based on the analysis, it indicates areas of major concentration of patenting and technology focus. USA and Canada are two major countries whose applicants have obtained a major share of total patents. While there is an appreciable research base in India in sugarcane, its technological competence does not get reflected in terms of patents obtained, which may be attributed to the lack of awareness about IPR. It highlights importance of scientists using patent analysis in identifying research priorities and areas of core competence to derive comparative advantages to meet emerging challenges of global economic competition.
