s&w seed co (SANW) Key Developments

S&W Seed Company and Bioceres S.A. to Enter into Alfalfa Seed Joint Venture

S&W Seed Company and Bioceres S. A announced that they will create a Joint Venture (JV) to develop and commercialize biotech-enhanced alfalfa varieties. The new seed JV combines S&W's premium genetics with Bioceres "next generation" R&D capabilities. Additionally, the two JV partners will leverage each other's distribution capabilities and relationships to sell S&W's elite alfalfa varieties in Argentina directly to local dealers and farmers. This elevates S&W's Argentine sales and marketing from being distributor dependent, to being end user-facing, both expanding the company's market presence and expanding the opportunities for enhanced margins. The JV partners believe that their high yielding alfalfa varieties coupled with state of the art biotechnology traits, can become a key asset to Argentina in developing a more sustainable and efficient farmland management model. S&W and Bioceres R&D effort will focus on developing traits that have abiotic stress tolerance mechanisms and can perform well in adverse conditions. In particular, new alfalfa varieties will incorporate Bioceres' HB4 technology, demonstrated to improve the productivity of multiple crops in conditions of drought and salinity. Bioceres has been developing ag-biotech traits for several crops and the creation of this joint venture will provide a unique market access opportunity for alfalfa.

S&W Seed Company Adds to Australian Seed Production Acreage to Meet Demand for Top Varieties

S&W Seed Company announced it has secured approximately 1,000 acres of contracted seed production in Australia to be dedicated to the company's elite S&W varieties which have historically been grown only in California. This initial planting in Australia is part of the company's strategy to expand and diversify its seed production base in the country and to benefit from a number of favorable economic factors inherent in Australian-based production. These 1,000 initial acres will finalize their planting in the coming weeks and harvested during the company's annual March/April 2015 harvest. The Southern portion of Australia is one of the limited number of world regions suitable for large scale production of non-dormant alfalfa seed varieties. The region has a high temperature growing season with minimal precipitation during harvest, access to irrigation water, and an abundance of bees and other pollinators, both domestic and wild. These climatic conditions are excellent for farming alfalfa seed. S&W recently acquired Australian-based Seed Genetics International ("SGI"), the large producer of alfalfa seed in the country, to further diversify and expand its production capabilities in Australia. With approximately a 50% share of the Australian acreage under contract, S&W believes it has a good opportunity to expand production of its most elite varieties to meet global demand in coming years.
