A law which criminalize the people who use seeds and plants which are not registered with the government.

A new law proposed by the European commission would make it illegal to grow, reproduce or trade any vegetable which have not been tested, approved and accepted by the new EU bureaucracy named the EU plant variety agency. It's called the plant reproductive material law. This plant reproductive material law puts government in charge of virtually all plants and seeds. Home gardeners who grow their own plants from their own regulated seeds are considered criminals under this law. As home gardeners grow the plants by hands and not by machines so there is no way to register the varieties suitable for home use as they don't meet the criteria of the plant variety agency. While this law may only be targeted only at commercial gardeners but it will soon reach out the home gardeners and require them to abide by the same regulations.
