"Mr President, some of the debate has been rather emotive, suggesting that we might be opposing this because we are in favour of the patenting of the plants themselves. That is not the case. This paper is full of errors. Look at paragraph 4, which not only excludes from patenting products derived from conventional breeding, but also seeks to remove from patenting innovations in things like smart breeding. There is also paragraph 7, which talks of a comprehensive breeders’ exemption, which is not the case. This depiction of us as supporting the patenting of plants simply does not ring true. I am speaking as a farmer. I am speaking on behalf of farmers, and I also have experience in plant breeding – which was the subject of my PhD – so I am not speaking from a position of ignorance here."@en1
