IP protection for agriculture & aquaculture

A growing global population applies increasing pressure on food production. Ensuring food security while preserving the natural and food production environment is driving research and development advances in the agriculture and aquaculture sectors. Tackling the issue of food security requires expertise in a broad range of technologies such as efficient pesticides, high-yield, disease-resistant seeds and animals, as well as methods of disease prevention and treatment.
