FARM ONLINE | GPA modernises end point royalty policy

Grain Producers Australia is working with the plant breeding sector to ensure the end point royalty (EPR) system works fairly for both growers and breeders.

This comes in light of the national peak body for plant breeders saying it will look to implement audits on growers it suspects of dodging EPR payments.

GPA's relevant policy is being reviewed with a discussion paper to members.

GPA chief executive Colin Bettles said growers supported the system in principle but did not want to pay top dollar for old or under performing genetics.

Given the increase in farmer to farmer trade he said it was important the system had a means for growers to include these royalties from grower to grower sales.
