THE PVP STATUS OF LILIUM IN CHINA, THE NETHERLANDS AND REST OF THE WORLD
The Plant Breeders Rights (PBR) applications for genus Lilium in the main countries as in The Netherlands, USA, New Zealand, and Chile, China reflect the development status with respect to breeding and innovation of the lily industry. In China, the Protection for New Variety of Plant (PVP) started from April 23, 1999 while China became the member state of UPOV, and the first lily PBR case was from Holland in 2002. Upon PBR application and granting of Lilium, we can evaluate the development of lily breeding and bulb production. The Netherlands is the leading country in the lily industry and dominate the lily breeding in the world, whereas China starts a new pursuit for lily but has a low developing status in lily breeding.
