Farmers who purchase farmed seeds of these varietal varieties sign a contract and agree to pay a royalty on each seed of this variety that they use on their own farm. “For newly released varieties, the YIA contract document will be different and read. This was necessary to address the WSU variety release system and the legal and technical aspects of the Plant Variety Protection Act (PVP) with respect to the date of sale of new varieties. No, the SVUA is only used for seeds of protected varieties kept by the farm. Many of the varieties currently in use will not have AUAS. “In Western Canada, we have a strong seed program and many farmers buy seeds from family trees. However, in many crops, between 60 and 80% of the hectares cultivated are not cultivated with family tree seeds. The SAVS would allow farmers, if they so wish, to establish a Variety Variety Fee (SVUF) for the cereals they would divert to their farm for use as seed (often referred to as agricultural seed) reflecting an appropriate value for the provision of an improved variety to the producer. “In theory, the final royalty system is fine on paper, but if no one gets their supplies from it, including grain farmers, there`s nowhere to go. Royalty and SVUA are the best option, as they are encouraged by the seed industry. It is our own solution to a complex problem. The AUVS ensures that you get a reasonable return on research investments for livestock work in Canada. Currently, in some parts of Canada, only a small portion of the seeds used each year (i.e., certified planted seed, which for some crops is only 12 percent of the hectares planted) are ready to fund your research program. .
