Legal row between big fertilizer co-operatives ends

from Radio New Zealand

The Ravensdown Company has been trying to patent the application technology for its Eco-n nitrification inhibitor since 2002, when it lodged the application. The product, developed with scientists from New Zealand's Lincoln University, is designed to reduce nitrate leaching and nitrous oxide emissions from grazed pasture, as well as increase production. The New Zealand patent was approved by the Intellectual Property Office in 2009. The other fertilizer co-operative, Ballance Agri-Nutrients, which has a competing product on the market, challenged it in the High Court, which has upheld the patent. more
