Horticulture is a specific branch of agricultural sciences that deals with the development and implementation of best practices when it comes to growing plants. One specific area of patent law, plant patents, is dedicated to the protection of distinct and unique varieties of plants. Beyond plant patents, Price Heneveld has vast experience in the horticultural sciences from products and processes. We have helped protect industry-leading systems that provide sustainable solutions to otherwise environmentally harmful products and practices. Technology in this area can include erosion control, urban green spaces, water runoff control, planter systems (both decorative and uniquely functional), as well as vegetated construction products.
Our attorneys have the experience and industry knowledge to artfully craft patent strategies in the horticultural sciences that lead to patent portfolios that are practical, forecasting, and economical. Price Heneveld understands the details that make a unique product or process in this well-developed area patentable.
