241. Exemption for farm saved seed.

Plant breeders' rights1 do not extend to the use by farmers of specified varieties2 of material3 for propagating purposes4. A farmer can benefit from this exemption only where he uses on his own holding5 material which is the product of the harvest which he has obtained by planting on his own holding propagating material of either the protected variety6 or a variety which is essentially derived from the protected variety
