Saskatchewan premier says B.C. company to locate in province due to tax break

REGINA — Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall says a tax break has helped entice a B.C.-based company to establish an operation in the province.

Brad Wall says Clean Seed Agricultural Technologies Ltd. has qualified for incentives that will see it pay a lower corporate income tax rate.

Wall says Clean Seed plans to move a big part of its operations to Saskatchewan over the next three years, including 20 jobs.

The company was approved under a program called the Saskatchewan Commercial Innovation Incentive.

Clean Seed says its technology allows producers to seed without tilling and to tailor seeding to specific soil conditions.

The company, which has a facility in Midale, says it has developed the technology and is now focusing on commercializing its CX-6 SMART Seeder. (CKRM)
