Definition of plant patent numbers

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by Joan:

A plant patent is granted by the Government to an inventor, or his/her heirs or assignees, who has hybridized or discovered, and asexually reproduced a distinct and new variety of plant. The patent lasts for 20 years from the date the application is filed, and protects the inventor\'s right to exclude others from asexually reproducing the plant.

Once the application is approved, a patent is granted and given a number that starts with PP.
