As from January 1, 2023, the fees of U.S. Plant Breeders' Rights for the crop lettuce have been adjusted.
The lower fee for varieties that were recently examined for DUS examination listing and/or Plant Breeders' rights will no longer apply. In practice the activities of Naktuinbouw were not completely compensated by the lower fee.
Future applications in lettuce will be examined in a separate U.S. Plant Breeders' Rights trial for an identical fee.
