Plant​ Patent Application


What it is

Plant patent applications are available for those inventors or applicants who have found a new species of plant which has been reproduced without the need for natural pollination or nature (asexually reproduced). Examples of these types of patents are for different strains of hops, fruit trees, and grapes (for wine). Just like utility applications, the written description needs to fully enable the invention and allow someone who is in the field of horticulture to be able to make and use the invention. In addition, a specimen of the plant invention needs to be submitted to the USPTO for inspection and analysis.

How Bold IP Does a Plant Patent Application

We work with the inventor and start out by doing a site visit or conduct a video conference where we can visually witness the plant and the process by which it was grown. Our team will work with the inventor and/or applicant to describe the written description as in other applications, draw the plant and prepare the specimen for submittal to the USPTO.
