What is wrong here?
All apples look the same, don't they? They are all green, each apple has a steam, they are probably the same variety, they all have lenticels on the skin.
But what could be the difference between these apples?
With three apples there is one significant difference!
CIOPORA is the International Community of Breeders of Asexually Reproduced Horticultural Plants. An association of breeders working to protect intellectual property for plant innovations:
"Plant breeding is an elaborate and cost-consuming process. It may take a plant breeder more than a decade to develop a new plant variety with an enhanced set of characteristics. The progress in breeding in horticulture and a great diversity of horticultural products on the market can only be guaranteed by means of effective Intellectual Property protection for plant innovations. For 60 years, CIOPORA has been actively contributing to the development of effective systems of Plant Variety Protection (PVP) worldwide.
CIOPORA is a community of breeders of asexually reproduced horticultural plants. It is globally accepted as an independent non-profit and non-governmental organization seeking to establish effective IP protection systems for horticulture. CIOPORA enjoys the observer status at the Community Plant Variety Office (CPVO) and the International Union for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants (UPOV)." (Quelle: www.ciopora.org)
