At our core, RPM Beijing is a horticulture technology company that applies techniques for seed treatment and tree seedling propagation in a production operation. Our patented RPM process starts from seed and requires approximately 9 months to completion. Our proprietary system involves novel seed stratification techniques, patented growing container designs, optimized growing media and an overarching nursery management system. When properly executed, our comprehensive seedling production process will provide tree seedlings of vastly superior size and appearance compared to industry standard. Furthermore, our tree seedlings have a 90% or higher survival rate when out-planted and will grow 30-40% faster than traditional tree seedlings. RPM Seedlings are generally characterized by their healthy, vibrant appearance and relatively large size. However, the most important aspect of an RPM seedling is the root system that is inside the container. By creating a beneficial pattern of root growth from the initial germination of the seed, RPM Technology allows seedlings to produce an extensive root system, which will ensure strong survival and growth for the life of the tree. Our patented process also incorporates leading edge seed treatment techniques, proprietary growing media mix, engineered nutrition and media enhancement programs, and precise culling and transplanting processes. Our comprehensive approach to seedling development is the only system in the world that consistently produces high quality seedlings across such a wide variety of species.
