These technologies often involve proprietary intellectual property (IP) that requires protection in order to proliferate. Those countries that have weak intellectual property right (IPR) environments may have reduced competitiveness as the seed complex becomes increasingly driven by research and development (R&D) models involving protected IP. Given the size and economic impact of the agricultural biotechnology complex and its significant commercial activity, this chapter will address the likely leaders and laggards from the seed industry’s shift to a protected IP model.

This project was led by Bob B. Buchanan and Peggy G. Lemaux of the College of Natural Resources, University if California, Berkeley, whom we thank for this information. The donations more typically take the form of grants of physical access to constructs and other crop improvement materials and expertise, by means of Material Transfer Agreements, rather than of transfers of IP per se. This phenomenon is characteristic of the power of farmers, North or South, to trump public regulation withholding innovations, when the apparent returns are sufficiently attractive.

Wright Although increased concentration of market power and a decline in new entrants are legitimate concerns, these new markets are being successfully served by multinational firms in a number of countries. Rapid diffusion and adaptation have also occurred in some developing countries prior to the adoption of more effective IPP. For the larger set of crops of lower appropriable value (or crops grown in markets that are more costly to service), the picture is quite different. ‘Orphan’ crops have not attracted sustained private sector attention, even where strong IPP is well established.
