Clean Seed signs MOU with Mahindra to bring Mini-MAX seeder to India

by

Clean Seed Capital Group Ltd., makers of the SMART Seeder, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Mahindra and Mahindra Limited to bring the seeding technology to India and to collaborate on other related opportunities.

“The fundamental goal of this collaboration will be to eradicate stubble burning, reduce input costs, boost crop production, enhance water conservation, and protect agricultural soils from further deterioration caused by the overuse of chemical fertilizers and extreme tilling,” the companies say in a joint release.

The companies will work together to introduce the Mini-MAX, a scaled-down model of its North American SMART Seeder MAX, to India’s farmers and to farmers in other countries.

Graeme Lempriere, CEO of Clean Seed Capital Group Ltd. says, “It is with great pride we announce the signing of an MOU with Mahindra and Mahindra, an industry leader that shares in a collective commitment to bring our technology to India as well as other countries within their market reach. Our common vision is to implement technologies that will truly benefit farmers by generating meaningful impacts on the agricultural ecosystem and environment around the world. We are grateful for all the support from the Government of Canada, the Saskatchewan Government and the Consul General of India to bring the MINI-MAX project to life in India.”
