“Regulated seeds from any plant species or variety that have commercial value prescribed in the regulations would mean that all crop seeds are at risk of having their processing controlled through this law through the enforcement of licence.

Small scale farmers, individuals who are gardening enthusiasts and those who run community gardens should be free to save, share and sell seeds as long as they are not commercially done.”
