Law 28477 establishes a closed list – in an annex – of crops, breeds and wild species that are recognized as part of the natural patrimony of the nation. This list includes a wide range of species and crop varieties, including native potatoes as well as domesticated animal breeds and wild animals. The law places on the Ministry of Agriculture (in coordination with local and regional governments and public and private entities) the responsibility of registering, disseminating, conserving and promoting genetic materials of these crops and breeds as well as the production, commercialization and internal and international consumption of domesticated breeds of animals and wild animals (indicated in the annex), according to sustainability criteria.
