Plant breeders can apply for plant variety protection from USDA’s Plant Variety Protection Office (PVPO) using the electronic application filing system. The ePVP System provides an efficient and secure way to 1) file new plant variety protection applications, 2) amend existing applications, 3) pay fees, 4) check the status of an application, and 5) correspond directly with PVPO staff. The ePVP System requires an applicant to establish an account prior to logging on.
