English term or phrase:(seeds do not) breed true
conferred by IPRs is highly limited for some technolo
It would be difficult for a technology producer to
enforce IPRs against a heterogeneous group of small
farmers who save and replant seeds for their own use.
Because of this, private sector investment has concen
trated more on seeds with built-in protection for intel
lectual property. Examples include genetically trans
formed seeds that will not germinate after the first crop
and hybrid seed technology that increases yields and re
sistance by combining varieties so that the seeds do not
breed true and subsequent crops do not perform as well.
