CHINA TO CRACK DOWN ON SEED COUNTERFEITING
Seed World reports:

The Chinese government has launched a specialized campaign against seed counterfeiting, the toughest one of its kind in recent years.

The government noted that "although seed quality has been improving for the past few years, infringements upon seed variety rights and the production as well as sales of counterfeit seeds in some places are still prominent, which causes damage to the farmers and breeders, violates the market order and restricts the innovation of the whole industry."

As a result, corn and rice seeds will be checked as the major categories on the market.

Illegal businesses will have their business licenses revoked while violators will be punished according to the laws.
