"Every once in a while, an idea so outrageous, so clever, so creative catches your attention, you just want to be part of it. The CX6 Smart Seeder and the team at Clean Seed Capital have done just that. They’ve designed a seeding tool so revolutionary, it will change the face of seeding tools around the world. I’ve recently joined the team in an advisory role and can’t wait to help reshape this industry."
"My passion for agriculture extends beyond agronomy. It’s all about working with producers to match leading edge agronomic practices with solid economics, so at the end of the day, the producer is comfortable with his or her decision and profit is the end result."
