The research paper talks about the sui generis system with reference to the farmer’s rights and breeder’s rights and further to this I had also tried to show the international aspect of the same. Firstly, it gives a brief introduction about the sui generis system that how it got evolved, it’s meaning and I have disused about the protection of sui generis plant varieties. Sui generis is now a system which guards the unique plants made by the breeder’s and for this the Intellectual Property Rights plays a very major role. So in this research paper I had also written that how the Intellectual Property Rights helped sui generis system to get evolved and to get strong. The research paper has a brief history about the International conventions by which it has slowly and gradually got developed. Later in this research paper I have discussed about the situation in India and have related to the different foreign countries like USA, U.K and more. At the end the manuscript talks about the Gala rose controversy and I have tried to explain that how sui generis system also protects the traditional knowledge.
