Read some of the testimonials we have received from our industry partners.
Colin West, Executive Director of the Maltsters’ Association of Great Britain:
“The competitiveness of the British malting industry depends on a thriving plant breeding sector to deliver improvements in the quality, performance and yield of home-grown malting barley varieties. Effective protection of plant breeders’ intellectual property rights is vital to maintain investment in plant breeding innovation, and MAGB fully supports the PVR campaign and its objectives.”
Andy Mitchell, Defra’s lead for varieties and seeds policy, said:
“The PVR campaign will help to increase awareness of the essential role of plant variety rights in sustaining investment in plant breeding. Defra supports continued innovation in plant varieties to increase the productivity and competitiveness of UK agriculture and our resilience to climate change.”
Jonathan Tipples, HGCA chairman, said:
“Maintaining investment in a vibrant plant breeding industry is of critical importance to the UK cereals sector. Access to continued genetic improvement and diversity will enable our farmers to remain competitive and profitable, and help to feed a growing world population. Plant variety rights support and protect that innovation process, and the HGCA fully endorses the PVR campaign in raising awareness of this vital issue.”
Alex Waugh, Director General of nabim said
“Advances in wheat breeding and breadmaking technology have enabled flour millers to use an increasing proportion of home-grown wheat in the grist, reversing the UK’s historical dependence on imported breadwheat. By stimulating and rewarding successful innovation in breeding, the PVR system supports access to a constant supply of new wheat varieties, delivering benefits not only in agronomic and yield terms but also through improved quality and consistency in milling and flour performance.”
