From the Western Economic Diversification Canada release dated November 25, 2016. Western Innovation Initiative funding helps companies quickly move their ideas to market.

The Canadian agriculture sector gets a boost today though the Government of Canada’s investment of $425,000 to further develop and commercialize an innovative no-till seeding system, the CX-6 SMART Seeder. The funding was announced by the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development and Minister responsible for Western Economic Diversification Canada.
