Plant Material Transfer Agreement

Prior to obtaining seed for evaluation, all interested parties must obtain a Plant Material Transfer Agreement from MCIA.

A Plant Material Transfer Agreement grants permission to an individual or company to evaluate a variety's agronomic traits and/or assess its potential for development and/or commercialization. Selection, breeding, and/or crossing are not permitted under the terms of the Plant Material Transfer Agreement. This agreement does not grant any rights for commercialization. A license/commercialization agreement is required to propagate varieties for seed or commercial use.
