Commissioner David Byrne has welcomed the decision of the EU’s Council of Ministers yesterday that the European Union will sign the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture.

Recipients marketing products arising from that access will have to pay back into the system an equitable share of the monetary and other benefits.
