The CMS is a database that contains an image of the Plant Variety Protection (PVP) Certificate and the associated application information submitted by the applicant. For a list of varieties that have been issued a PVP Certificate, enter the certificate or application PV Number, applicant name, or plant variety name in the search box below. If searching by the PV Number, for certificates issued between 1970 and 1999, add two zeroes in front of the 7-digit number.
This is a basic search tool, special characters cannot be used in the search. If special characters are used in the plant variety name try searching by the first or last part of the name.
The PVPO also posts a monthly Application Status Report. The Application Status Report is an MS Excel spreadsheet that lists all applications received by the PVPO. This spreadsheet can be used to locate the PV Number that can be used in the search below. For assistance please contact the Office.
