This report examines the transformation of the Australian pasture seeds industry over the past twenty years from an industry based on grower/marketers to an industry characterised by specialist marketing companies, specialised growers often growing under contract, and public breeding institutions working in a new commercial environment. It also examines the relationship between contract growing and plant breeder’s rights; the attitude of growers to contract growing; and the legal status of the growing contracts.
