- Clean Seed Capital Group Ltd. (“Clean Seed” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: CSX) announced that it will promote the SMART Seeder MAXTM in collaboration with Canada West Harvest Centre (“CAWHC”). CAWHC is a five-store agricultural equipment dealer in Saskatchewan that covers key agricultural producing areas of the province that the SMART Seeder MAXTM is aimed at.
- CAWHC is owned by CLAAS, an OEM agricultural brand that is one of the most well-known in the business. As part of CLAAS of America’s growth plan to deliver high-level service and support to its customers, the first CAWHC facility opened in 2014.
- Since its inception in 2014, the SMART Seeder MAXTM will be the first precision seeding equipment carried by CAWHC.
Mike Malmgren, General Manager of Canada West Harvest Centre states, “We are very pleased with this opportunity to work with Clean Seed. As we explored this decision and got to know Colin and his Saskatoon based team, their commitment to being leaders in the seeding industry shone through immediately. Further, the SMART Seeder MAX™ is easily one of the most innovative seeding tools to emerge in our market as it will provide unmatched agronomic benefits to drive increased financial returns for agricultural producers.
Clean Seed has done the work to create a product that has the capabilities to drive a step-change in seeding and planting. We look forward to being in the field this spring to start demonstrating the value of this revolutionary seeding tool to our customer base and to grow consumer interest in Saskatchewan for the 2023 SMART Seeder MAX™ and subsequent model years. Clean Seed is a group of passionate ag equipment professionals with industry leading technology. Naturally their product line is a perfect complement to our existing CLAAS lineup.”
With Saskatchewan having almost 40% of the total crop land area in Canada this partnership is the gateway for Clean Seed to access the majority of Saskatchewan for sales, support, and service of our technology. The SMART Seeder™ MAX family represents a quantum leap forward providing producers with the technology to greatly reduce input costs and drive crop yields, all in parallel with our environmentally sustainable approach to the seeding and planting process.
We look forward to starting our Saskatchewan based customer demonstration program with CAWHC in April 2022 which will lay the groundwork for the SMART Seeder MAX customer base in Saskatchewan along with the parallel growth of CLAAS’ high horsepower Xerion tractor line. Concurrently, Clean Seed will be initiating its Alberta demonstration program and will shortly thereafter open its order program for the 2023 SMART Seeder MAX.”
About SMART Seeder MAX™
The SMART Seeder MAX™ is paired with either the 7204 or 7605 bulk transfer cart in a 720 or 760 bushel capacity, transporting up to five individual products in the mini tanks that supply each row’s Cushion Drive meters virtually eliminating downtime to the seeding operation.
The SMART Seeder™ combines precision with accuracy by delivering high resolution seed and fertilizer prescriptions down to the square foot across every row of the drill. The flawless integration of soil maps allows for maximum return on agronomic data and boosts production of every single furrow.
