Ag Supply denied infringement and filed a counterclaim for patent invalidity, arguing that the Plant Patent Act of 1930 (creating plant patents) and the PVPA (creating Plant Variety Protection certificates) are the exclusive means for protecting plant life, which makes utility patents obtained on plants under 35 U.S.C.
Today, patent applicants in the United States have three choices of applicable law, each containing different requirements and entitlements: the Plant Patent Act (PPA) of 1930, the Plant Variety Protection Act of 1970, and the Patent Act of 1952.
agriculture are sexually reproduced, the Plant Patent Act provides only

Schubert, proprietor of the Somerset Rose Nursery of New Brunswick." The patent covers "a climbing or trailing rose, known as the "New Dawn." The new Plant Patent Act was signed by President Hoover on May 23, 1930.
In 1930, Congress, recognizing the impact that new technologies were having on the breeding and cultivation of plants, passed the first Plant Patent Act.(36) The Act lifted the absolute bar against issuing patents on plants, but only for asexually reproducing plants and only in a narrowly defined set of circumstances.
These efforts encountered resistance from farmers and consumers, leading to a compromise in which there was registration and copyright-like protection for ornamental plants and grafted fruit trees -- the Townsend-Purnell Plant Patent Act of 1930.
Confronted with the inapplicability of intellectual property law to new varieties of plants, Congress enacted the Plant Patent Act of 1930 and the Plant Variety Protection Act of 1970, which protect new varieties against unauthorized asexual and sexual reproduction, respectively.
