Threats to Seed Saving

Learn more about the Threats to Seed Saving – proposed seed saving legislation that could threaten the right of farmers’ to save seed:

“Through the agreement, the European Union (EU) is aggressively pushing Canada to adopt a stringent and farmer-binding version of Plant Breeders Rights (PBR). That version of PBR, known as “UPOV ’91” would effectively extinguish farmers’ rights to save and re-use seeds. Worse, the Agreement would give farm-crushing enforcement powers to any corporation that asserted a farmer had infringed the company’s intellectual property rights (IPR).”
