PBR and IP Protection
You have solved the biggest problem in the Cannabis industry today:
- Unvalidated and poorly documented germplasm resources.
- Highly variable and unpredictable poly-hybrid seed.
PBR registration provides 20 years protection of the name and commercial use (e.g. propagation, licensing, patents on plant materials/applications) derived from your unique cultivars
Triffid BioScience® PBR service at a glance:
Provisional protection can be achieved in approximately 4 months, subsequently you can use the PBR logo when marketing your cultivars.
Concurrent registration of multiple varieties is the most efficient approach to manage costs and time.
Triffid BioScience® PBR service is delivered in two phases so you ultimately remain in control, but we lead you through the entire process.
