Ag Law in the Field


Nov 12, 2020

When can a farmer save seed to use again for the next season?  What protections are in place for seed companies to prevent the illegal use or sale of seed?  What protections are offered by patent law, the Plant Variety Protection Act, and license agreements?

These are the questions I sat down with Arkansas-based attorney, Joel Cape, to discuss.  Joel has represented seed companies, seed sellers, and growers in navigating these legal issues.
