Clean Seed makes significant appointments

Clean Seed Capital Group Ltd. (TSXV: CSX) made significant additions to its management team, and advisory board, since the beginning of the year. We believe these appointments give a signal to the market that the company is gearing up for a strong 2017. Brief biographies of the new members follow:

Colin Rush, Chief Operating Officer
Colin is a senior operations leader with nearly 20 years’ experience in the North American agricultural equipment industry. Colin has held senior positions with John Deere, Case IH and JCB Canada. Colin had joined Clean Seed as an independent director in 2014. Colin played an instrumental role in securing the Rocky Mountain Equipment distribution network partnership. Colin holds a Bachelor of Science in Mechanized Agriculture from the University of Saskatchewan and a Master of Business Administration in Agricultural Economics from the University of Guelph.

William Edward Mufford, P.Eng., Chief Technology Officer
For more than 20 years Ed has built, expanded, developed and led high tech engineering teams
from early stage research and development into large scale commercial production. Ed has held leadership roles with Ballard Power Systems, General Hydrogen, & Plug Power Canada. Ed and with a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering in 1992.

Gary Anderson, Advisory Board Member
Mr. Anderson co-founded AG Growth International Inc. (AGI) in 1996 and served as its CEO from 2010 to January 2016. From its inception on the Alberta Stock Exchange to its present form as a TSX listed company with an enterprise value of $1.1 billion, Mr. Anderson was a driving force behind AGI’s strategic direction, the acquisition and integration of fifteen business units, the development of AGI’s people and its ongoing operational performance and improvements. AGI has production facilities across Canada, Midwest United States, United Kingdom, Italy and Brazil.

Clean Seed has developed a group of patented and patent pending smart seeding and planting technologies that, we believe, has the potential to revolutionize how farmers conduct seeding and planting operations globally. The company commercialized its flagship product last year – a 60 feet wide wireless seeding machine, named the CX-6 Smart Seeder.



Initial sales totaled $1.05 million. We estimate that a 10% market share in the seeding belt of the U.S. and Canada alone reflects potential for annual revenues of $180 million from the CX-6 Smart Seeder product line.
 
CSX has a distribution agreement with Rocky Mountain Dealerships Inc., one of the leading agriculture and construction equipment dealerships in the country. Management intends to negotiate distribution agreements with other dealers to expand its distribution in to the U.S. and the rest of Canada this year.
The company also has a manufacturing agreement with WS Steel Ltd; a Manitoba based Tier 1 original equipment manufacturer (OEM) for a wide range of industries with a special focus on the agricultural industry.

We believe Clean Seed’s technology will be highly attractive for the majors once sales ramp up and the market gets to see users’ feedback on the CX-6 Smart Seeder. Clean Seed management’s strategy is to potentially license one or more of its technologies to the majors, such as Deere & Company (NYSE: DE), Case IH (NYSE: CNHI), Bourgault Industries, etc. A licensing deal will take the company’s IP to the global stage and allow for rapid expansion.
 
CSX’s CEO, Graeme Lempriere has invested approximately $3 million in the company since inception. Management and board own 27% of the total outstanding shares of CSX. Prairie based farmers own another 40% of the shares, which we believe shows their vote of confidence on the company’s technology. We have a BUY rating and a fair value estimate of $1.90 per share on CSX.

We believe any of the following potential catalysts in the next 12 months will have a positive impact on the share price.  

  • Demonstrations of the CX-6 across the Canadian prairies to ramp up sales;
  • New distribution partners in the U.S.
  • Develop smart planting technologies aimed at the global planter market
  • Potential licensing or M&A activity

About Clean Seed:

We have developed an advanced precision no-till seeding system comprising several individually patented technologies, including in-ground openers, proprietary seed and fertilizer metering, and electronic control systems.

Our most advanced and innovative technology is the CX-6 SMART Seeder™, a true industry first. The CX-6 SMART Seeder™ is the next generation of seeding technology that creates a new niche within the large-scale farm markets, and as the creators of this technology, we are uniquely positioned to dominate this new market niche.

 

To take advantage of coming agriculture 'revolution' Canada needs investment, says expert

Posted on Feb 21, 2017 by Clean Seed Capital

In a recent article published on Feb 18, 2017 by CBC News, author Catharine Tunney summarizes through interviews and fact collection the movement of agricultural innovation, the demand for technology and the need for investment; both governmental and commercial to take advantage of the opportunity to expand Canada’s agricultural contribution and overall GDP.

 


Clean Seed Capital Group and its Agricultural Technologies division is at the forefront of this moment. Through private and commercial investment and significant support and contributions from the Government of Canada, we have been working tirelessly to bring awarding winning technological innovations to the agricultural marketplace.

Along with our technological achievements we are continuing to pursue our aggressive agenda as pioneers in facilitating sustainable agriculture that will inevitably play a pivotal role in confronting the demands of both the marketplace and global food production as a whole.


Evan Fraser, head of the University of Guelph's Food Institute, tells CBC The House host Chris Hall, right, that Canada is poised to become a leader in the agri-food sector. (CBC)


Evan Fraser, Head of the University of Guelph's Food Institute was quoted: "We have to imagine a tractor driving through a field and the tractor itself senses where it is on the field and plants the right seed at the right time and gives it the right amount of fertilizer."

"We can create a Silicon Valley type vibe for food in our country where we can hopefully benefit in terms of innovation, jobs and hopefully sustainability," he said


Silicon Valley meets farming in the creation of the Clean Seed SMART Seeder™ (Clean Seed Photo) (CBC)


As of now there is no need to imagine, Clean Seed has successfully merged Silicon Valley with farming and while doing so accomplished the single largest technological leap for modern agricultural innovation in history with the creation of the award winning CX-6 SMART Seeder™

Our SMART Seeder™ demonstrates the future of farming by offering farmers the ability to deliver up to 6 different products, simultaneously across the entire seed drill with pin point accuracy to any square foot of any field. The SMART Seeder™ and our SeedSync™ software also allows for the flawless integration of soil maps and accurate variable rate product delivery unleashing the true power of agronomy and performing exactly as Mr. Fraser states.

Germination Magazine: Advancing Innovation - Innovations in seeders and sorters are driving the industry forward.

Posted on Nov 14, 2016 by Clean Seed Capital

ADVANCING INNOVATION

Improvements in technology and equipment are happening all the time in the seed sector. Innovations in seeders and sorters are driving the industry forward.

November 9, 2016 | Mark Halsall

Every so often, technological innovations come along that have the potential to revolutionize industry practices. The makers of the CX-6 Smart Seeder are confident their machine holds such promise.

“It’s fairly disruptive technology,” says Colin Rosengren, who helped design the seeder. “It’s a big leap — like when the first air drill was created and took over from diskers and drills.”

Rosengren is a director with Clean Seed Agricultural Technologies Ltd. based in British Columbia. He says each of the six openers on the CX-6 has wirelessly controlled meters that allow the operator to deliver precise amounts of seed and inputs to maximize efficiency and yield while reducing costs.

The seeder uses prescription maps to deliver crop enhancement products where they’re needed most. The result, according to Rosengren, is “very controlled metering on a foot-by-foot level of each individual product.”

He says farmers can be more responsible with fertilizer usage, because it eliminates over-application in areas, such as headlands. It also helps optimize return on investment for inputs. Micronutrients typically only need to be applied in certain areas, Rosengren says, and the CX-6 can apply them at the right rate and in the right spots.

He describes the CX-6 as a new class of seeder not because of its precision, but its capacity to deliver multiple products. “We have up to six product capabilities, versus a planter that can only do one product,” he says.

The federal government is supporting the CX-6 with an investment of $1.8 million to Clean Seed Agricultural Technologies. The funding, which comes from the AgriInnovation Program, will help build more production models of the CX-6, as well as upgrade the production line.

“This technology represents a new step forward in precision, no-till farming,” says Terry Beech, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Science.
