Varieties, royalties and assessments

Many publicly developed varieties are protected by the Plant Variety Protection Act and require a license or royalty agreement to produce and distribute seed of those varieties. Not all agreements are the same and seed producers are encouraged to inquire about various royalties or assessments associated with a variety.
