TERNPC is a mature rapid plant propagating technique. The effect i
much better than tissue culture and any other conventiona
propagating means. As a new propagating method, TERNPC has been pu
into operation for 17 years. More than 550 kinds of plants have bee
successfully multiplied. And this number is increasing every year b
50. There are now over 40 affiliated companies in production.
1 What is TERNPC
“The technique of efficient & rapid non-test tube plan
clone”(TERNPC) is a completely new system for rapid plan
propagation, first invented by Professor Li Changxiao. Through
long-time practice, it has been proved to be an importan
breakthrough both in the tube rapid plant propagation of moder
biotechnology and in the conventional seedling-breeding techniqu
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 lo
cost, rapid speed, high efficiency, considerable benefit and easil
reaching large scale. This technology keeps the advantage of tissu
culture and conventional ways. At the same time, it overcomes th
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 needles
2) Few fields neede
3) Low cost and high benefi
4) High survival rate
5) Simple step
6) Seedlings without mutatio
7) Working at any time of the year
8) Suit for most plant
1) Need a lab or a big building
2) Difficult for a common people to maste
3) Complex and costly facilities demande
4) Lower Survival rate
Many tissue culturists and scholars who knew TERNPC come to a
agreement that TERNPC utmost decreases the risk of death whe
seedlings are transplanted in the field from tubes; Utmost decrease
the threaten of contamination by microbe; Utmost decreases th
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 o
no less than 50. As time flies, the quantity of the plants that bre
by TERNPC will be remarkable. Professor Li Changxiao, who is th
inventor of TERNPC, predicted that in all the seedlings produced b
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
propagating unit, the cut of which is dealt with a kind of liqui
that include at least 200 ingredients, and then put it on the san
bed. After a series of simple and effective management, it will gro
into a whole individual at last. One generation will be produce
within 20-60 days. The survival rate will reach to 80~100%
This technique is not like other traditional propagating methods--i
you sow one seed you will get one plant; if you graft one bud yo
will also obtain one plant; if you use one cutting you still wil
have one plant. To TERNPC, using micro plant material will produc
lots of seedlings, the quantity of which will grow in geometrica
progression. The tech works in the condition that is like traditiona
methods to some degree and the principle is similar with tissu
culture. Even the plant material from the tube can be used as th
The speed of inoculation is 3-5 times as fast as tissue culture. On
common employee can inoculate 3,000-5,000 materials per day (
hours). A technician having been trained for 4 months can produc
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 differen
As long as there is grass growing on the land, the soil can be used a
culture medium. If it is suitable for drinking, the water could mee
the demand of TERNPC.
So far more than 550 kinds of plants have been successfully
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
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.
