MarkMatters.com often reports on fake watches, high end fashion bags et cetera. But there are counterfeit products on almost any market you can imagine.
There seems to be an alarming rise of counterfeit seeds on the farm input market. Yes, seeds.
At the beginning of the 2011-2012 farming season, farmers are more and more at risk of being swindled into buying “fake” seed. These seeds are usually low priced. You will understand that such seeds will most likely not come up, or will come up less than the ‘real thing’.
Farmers, be warned!
Oh yes, and of course an opportunity for all you IP professionals in rural areas!
