Abstract
These Regulations define "small farmers" for the purpose of establishing which farmers are entitled to exemption from the requirement to pay equitable remuneration, at the time of the use, to the rights holder. Section 18 of the Registered Plant Breeders' Rights (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Ordinance, 2007, provides that plant breeders' rights do not extend to the use by farmers of specified varieties of material for propagating purposes in certain circumstances (farm saved seed). However, a farmer whose use of material is excepted from plant breeders' rights by section 18 is nevertheless required, unless he or she is a small farmer.
