Winners of the Innovation Awards at Canada’s Farm Progress Show 2013 in Regina received recognition from the show and their fellow exhibitors.
In some cases, such as the People’s Choice award, the show participants were first time attendees, with new products to the farm marketplace.
Clean Seed of British Columbia attracted enough show visitor votes to take home the Innovation prize.
The company has a seed metering and delivery system that is new to the industry and Regina was chosen to give the world a first look at the new tool.
