Plants & Agriculture

Forming an important part of our life sciences practice, Spruson & Ferguson has vast experience in plant and agriculture related patents as well as plant breeders’ rights (PBR).

An emerging industry in the Asian region, our experience in the field of plant science includes plant patents, and technologies developed for sustainable agriculture including, breeding strategies, disease and pest resistance as well as practices for generating transgenic and multicellular organisms. With developing countries in the region still heavily reliant on their agricultural industry this field is an important field for our life sciences practice.

We work with public and private organisations operating in the primary industries sector, including co-operative research centres (CRCs), research institutes, universities and global agricultural corporations.

Our professional members in our Chemical/Life Sciences team have the technical knowledge and industry experience to assist individuals and organisations in the agricultural and plants sector. They have strong knowledge within a variety of technologies including:

  • plant health, pests and diseases
