Registration of Vegetable Varieties in the French Catalogue

Before a new variety can be placed on the market in France, it must be registered in the Official French Catalogue of species and varieties.

The French Catalogue and Results for the Plant and Seed Sectors

Data acquired during the technical examinations for registration can also be widely used in other contexts.

Plant Variety Protection

A new variety can be protected by a specific intellectual property right, called a Plant Variety Right.

Marketing and Certification of Seeds and Propagating Material of Vegetable Species

Two categories exist for vegetable crops: “Standard” for seeds and “CE” for plants, and “Certified”, an optional superior grade.

Resistance of Vegetable Species to Disease and Pests

GEVES is responsible for characterising varietal genetic resistance on behalf of the CTPS, in the framework of variety registration in the French Catalogue.
