Plant Variety Rights Act
As part of our commitment to The Owners of the PVR
material we are licensed to grow in New Zealand and
to fulfil our contract with them we assure them certain
criteria are being met by our growers or these plants.
We have been very lenient about this in the past
but a few problems have now arisen which have necessitated
a tidy up in this area.
Could you please take a moment to familiarise yourself
of your commitment as a PVR Grower.
