Abstract : This research aims to examine to what extent the protection of new plant varieties through breeding activities can play a role in providing economic effects. Play a role in encouraging and supporting food security programs. Data were collected using documentation and literature study techniques, data analysis was carried out descriptively and qualitatively by tabulating the data obtained by the research objectives. This research uses qualitative methods to answer the formulation of the problem of empowering intellectual property rights in the field of plant varieties. To support food security, this type is normative-empirical, namely using a legal approach with additional empirical elements. Normative legal research is often also called doctrinal legal research, using a statutory approach and conceptual methods. The research results show recognition of the legality of ownership of plant breeding results as a form of public service. It requires awareness of two parties, namely the government itself in building campaigns and outreach, as well as by the breeders themselves both as individuals and as part of research/R&D institutions. Providing legality with the consequences of maintaining and enforcing the law will have a good economic impact on breeders.
