Farmers: Plant Breeders Bill inimical to Ghana’s


Lets just assume for the sake of argument that multinational companies will come and take advantage of this bill to develop and register their varieties, how does this prevent farmers from using the varieties they are used to? Again, i am struggling to understand how anyone claiming to protect the interest of farmers will be encouraging them to save seed!
