Flat Fee Plant Patent Application


What is a
Plant Patent?

Plant Patents are issued by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). They protect novel plant varietals and cultivars, granting the patent holder the exclusive right to reproduce, use, and sell the new plant breed for a period of 20 years.
