In this paper, we introduce the notion of ternary semi-integral domain and ternary semifield and study some of their properties.In particular we also investigate the maximal ideals of the ternary semiring Z-0.

Keywords: ternary semiring, prime ideal, maximal ideal, ternary semi-integral domain, ternary division semiring, ternary semifield.
