A new method of plant propagation
TERNPC is a mature rapid plant propagating technique. The effect is much better than tissue culture and any other conventional propagating means. As a new propagating method, TERNPC has been put into operation for 17 years. More than 550 kinds of plants have been successfully multiplied. And this number is increasing every year by 50. There are now over 40 affiliated companies in production.
1、 What is TERNPC?
“The technique of efficient & rapid non-test tube plant clone”(TERNPC) is a completely new system for rapid plant propagation, first invented by Professor Li Changxiao. Through a long-time practice, it has been proved to be an important breakthrough both in the tube rapid plant propagation of modern biotechnology and in the conventional seedling-breeding technique that has been used by mankind for nearly 2000 years.
2、 What is the characteristic of TERNPC?
The most significant characteristics of TERNPC can be described as low cost, rapid speed, high efficiency, considerable benefit and easily reaching large scale. This technology keeps the advantage of tissue culture and conventional ways. At the same time, it overcomes the disadvantages of them.
3、 What is the difference between TERNPC and tissue culture?
Compared with tissue culture and conventional ways of propagation, TERNPC is more advanced:
1) Expensive equipments needless
2) Few fields needed
3) Low cost and high benefit
4) High survival rate
5) Simple steps
6) Seedlings without mutation
7) Working at any time of the year
8) Suit for most plants
1) Need a lab or a big building
2) Difficult for a common people to master
3) Complex and costly facilities demanded
4) Lower Survival rate
Many tissue culturists and scholars who knew TERNPC come to an agreement that TERNPC utmost decreases the risk of death when seedlings are transplanted in the field from tubes; Utmost decreases the threaten of contamination by microbe; Utmost decreases the mutation of clones and keeps the nature of original plant materials; Utmost decreases the cost of equipments, expandable goods, water, electricity and labor.
4、 Can all the plants be propagated by TERNPC?
More than 550 kinds of plants have successfully propagated by TERNPC. And the number of plant species is growing every year in the speed of no less than 50. As time flies, the quantity of the plants that bred by TERNPC will be remarkable. Professor Li Changxiao, who is the inventor of TERNPC, predicted that in all the seedlings produced by asexual ways, the seedlings propagated by TERNPC would be the most.
5、 How to manipulate?
First get a leaf with a bud and 3mm’s section of young stem as a propagating unit, the cut of which is dealt with a kind of liquid that include at least 200 ingredients, and then put it on the sand bed. After a series of simple and effective management, it will grow into a whole individual at last. One generation will be produced within 20-60 days. The survival rate will reach to 80~100%.
This technique is not like other traditional propagating methods--if you sow one seed you will get one plant; if you graft one bud you will also obtain one plant; if you use one cutting you still will have one plant. To TERNPC, using micro plant material will produce lots of seedlings, the quantity of which will grow in geometrical progression. The tech works in the condition that is like traditional methods to some degree and the principle is similar with tissue culture. Even the plant material from the tube can be used as the propagating units.
The speed of inoculation is 3-5 times as fast as tissue culture. One common employee can inoculate 3,000-5,000 materials per day (8 hours). A technician having been trained for 4 months can produce 30,000-100,000 seedlings of a species per month.
6、 How about the adaptability of TERNPC in different areas?
Whether in the south or north, different latitude or different soil, or different climate, the propagation can be carried on by different methods.
As long as there is grass growing on the land, the soil can be used as culture medium. If it is suitable for drinking, the water could meet the demand of TERNPC.
So far more than 550 kinds of plants have been successfully propagated.
7、 How about the stability and reliability of TERNPC?
17 years’ applied practice, over 30 affiliated companies and cooperative bases, more than 250,000,000 plants having been propagated by TERNPC, covering an area of 250,000 mu, all of these have proved its stability and reliability.
8、 How to cooperate?
There are five ways to make a cooperative relationship.
1) Flexible cooperative way:
The customer puts forward to the cooperative ways that can realize all win, of mutual reciprocity and mutual benefits
2) Close united type
Associated joint venture will be set up. The registered capital is more than 500 000RMB. Party A (your company) becomes a shareholder by way of investing cashes, accounts for % of shares of new company. Party B (Ningxia Kelong Industrial Co. Ltd) becomes a shareholder by way of investing technology (technique of efficient & rapid non-tube plant clone: TERNPC), accounts for % of the share of new company. Cooperative time limit is more than ten years. The scale of production shall reach more than one or ten million, the profits will be shared by their share proportions. This method’s characteristic does not restrict the variety, can carry on the working together of non-physical assets.
3) Consigned project
According to market, your company put forward to the varieties of rapid propagation. You consign task to our company. Parties sign consigned contract including specification, price of the variety, the production scale is no less than 1 million. After the contract is signed, you need to prepay % cash. We organize the technical staff and skilled worker to put into production in time in your place. We are responsible for to all produce and manage. Our company must finish the task of seedling on schedule. At the same time, you must pay cash. This method characteristic is that operation is very quick; we can begin to produce the seedlings on your base in 7-10 days after the contract is signed. The responsibility of both sides is very clear. The consigned price of the seedling is much lower than the price in the market.
4) Technological service supply
This way is mainly suitable for the company of a small amount of fund, single variety and small production scale. This company produces 500 000 nursery stock or so.
5) Your side propose
You side can offer us your own plan. Before establishing cooperative relationship, we may sit at desk and discuss the details.
9、 What work should be done before cooperation?
Market investigation, including market direction, kinds and amount needed, etc. And then make a clear decision that what plants you want to produce. （email: firstname.lastname@example.org）
10、 After cooperation, what kind of work should we do? What kind of work should you do?
Your fund, administrative staff should be put in place in time. Get the working condition ready such as the ground for production, the raw material, tools for production, planting resources, workers’ living condition, etc. We will send the technical staff and administrative staff at the time. They will help you to finish the company's registration and the preparation of production
11、 What is the cooperative responsibility of both sides?
Your prime responsibility is: Financial administration, opening up market, selling the nursery stock, the fund of production, the preparation and supplement of material, the recruitment of the skilled worker and the daily administration.
Our prime responsibility is: the application of technology, the management of technology assistants, the training of skilled worker and help you open up market and sell the products.
12、 Who is suitable for the work?
TERNPC is easier to master than tissue culture and can be well accepted by people. People of all arrangements are able to take all or part of the work easily.
