     One year after granting the world-wide propagation and commercialization rights of Jintao, a female cultivar plant from the novel variety of kiwifruit (Actinidia chinensis Planchm) to the Italian firm Kiwigold Consortium, the CAS Wuhan Botanical Garden (WBG) reached a new agreement with the firm on the similar right of a male plant cultivar Moshan-4.

    As the kiwifruit is a dioecious plant, the male cultivar plays a significant role in the fruit-bearing process. Moshan-4, which is developed by WBG pomologists, is an outstanding male plant for pollination characterized by long flowering length (twice as long as ordinary ones) and more viable pollens.

    Over the next 28 years, the Italian firm will have the propagation and commercialization rights of Moshan-4 by paying royalties.

    The move is hailed as a successful attempt of Chinese researchers in commercializing their research results with independent property rights on the market, says WBG director Huang Hongwen.
