First Prescriptive, on Planter Seed Treatment Solution Made Possible by a Product Development and Licensing Agreement Between Inflexion Point Technologies and ALMACO

Sep 27, 2021

Product Development and Licensing Agreement Between Inflexion Point Technologies and ALMACO POP-ST enables real-time, precision application delivered directly from the planter to each seed in the most sustainable and flexible method. URBANDALE, Iowa - September 28, 2021 - (Newswire.com) Inflexion Point Technologies, LLC (IPT) and ALMACO announced today a business relationship that will sustainably increase food productivity and farmer profitability by enabling researchers and growers to increase their use of sustainable biological seed treatments while also more effectively tailoring their treatments to their agronomic zones and growing conditions. IPT, co-founded by CEO Steve Smith and President Nick Iwig, is an Ag Tech company that has developed the industry's first prescriptive, on-planter seed treatment (POP-ST™) solution. "We are excited to collaborate with industry leader ALMACO to commercialize our POP-ST technology. ALMACO's long history of successful technology offerings in the research market will ensure our POP-ST technology is field tested and farmer approved. By collaborating with ALMACO, we will be positioned to serve the needs of our customers in research and at the farm gate," said Smith. Guided by CEO Patrick Clem, ALMACO is a market leader in the seed research equipment industry, developing and commercializing novel technologies in the seed processing, packaging, planting, plant phenotyping, harvesting, and pollination markets over the last several decades. ALMACO will optimize the final product development phase of IPT's patent-pending POP-ST technology. ALMACO research planters with POP-ST technology will be available for the Spring 2022 planting season with commercial planter kits available for the Spring 2023 planting season. In exchange for the product optimization, ALMACO will get certain preferred terms in its license to commercialize the POP-ST solution in the research planter market. "Despite our unprecedented success in the seed research equipment market, we recognized the need to continually adapt to maintain that success. One way we've done so is to actively seek out opportunities to partner with startups bringing game-changing technologies to market. When we learned about IPT's POP-ST solution, we simply couldn't pass up the opportunity to play a critical role in commercializing it. We believe it will significantly improve how seed treatment is done for both our research customers and farmers," said Clem. Unleashing a New Class of Sustainable, Biological Seed Treatments The biological seed treatment market is rapidly expanding with increased desire to sustainably improve per-acre performance on the farm. "New technology is needed to enable yield-protecting green solutions that also optimize farmers' return on investment. IPT's novel POP-ST technology enables a broader spectrum of biological and niche treatments to be directly applied over the top of already-treated seed," Smith explained. Iwig added, "Our POP-ST technology increases the number of valuable technologies a farmer can apply to seeds compared to current practices. POP-ST is the first on-seed application technology enabling farmers to maintain biological seed treatments in their optimal state until they are deployed real-time in field to deliver farmers the most value." Seed Treatment—The Next Evolution of the Prescriptive Input Movement POP-ST enables real-time, precision application delivered directly from the planter to each seed in the most sustainable and flexible method. "POP-ST is a game-changing solution that will, for the first time, allow planters to vary which seed treatments they apply, the combinations and rates at which they apply them, and the locations where they do so based on agronomic zone and other planting conditions," Smith explained. "Our solution is designed to be added as an upgrade to existing planters and integrated into the manufacturing process of new planters. Ultimately, our POP-ST offerings create an entirely new category of seed treatment—in-field, real-time prescriptive seed treatments," said Iwig.

Sexton Advisory Group Outlines Key Retirement Benchmarks for Staying on Track

Sep 27, 2021

Financial Consultant Steve Sexton Shares Three Timely Tips to Retire Securely Sexton Advisory Group SAN DIEGO - September 28, 2021 - (Newswire.com) According to the 2021 Global Retirement Index (GRI), a recent survey conducted by Natixis Investment Managers, over 40% of Americans believe "it's going to take a miracle" to retire securely. Moreover, 59% of Americans are accepting of the fact they may have to work longer, while 36% feel they won't ever have the means to retire. Steve Sexton, financial consultant and CEO of Sexton Advisory Group in San Diego, outlines critical strategies and benchmarks for staying on track for retirement. Set specific goals. When it comes to retiring securely, it is crucial to understand how much you have saved and what your ideal retirement age is to determine realistic retirement goals. "You will need to compare your current savings to your current gross income to start setting attainable goals based on your income," says Sexton. "If you haven't already established specific retirement goals, it's never too late to start." Consider the 85% rule of life expectancy. "While retirement savings benchmarks are dependent on a number of factors including age, income, lifestyle, healthcare expenses and more, I generally advise my clients to add in a buffer to account for life's unexpected ups and downs, many of which could occur during retirement," says Sexton. The 85% rule of life expectancy suggests individuals looking to retire save 85% of their annual income multiplied by 20 years, the average number of years one will spend in retirement. The final amount is a ballpark suggestion of how much one should save to retire securely. Consider the 3 A's: Sexton suggests looking at the 3 A's when figuring out how much to save: Amount, Accounts, and Assets. When determining the amount you need to save, Sexton recommends the 50/30/20 rule, which allocates 50% of your income for bills, 30% on discretionary spending, and 20% for savings. When looking at your accounts, factor in all of your sources of retirement income, including social security, employer pensions, investments, and retirement accounts such as 401ks. When it comes to assets, the higher percentage of retirement savings that are in stocks, the higher the portfolio rate of return will be. "Long-term retirement planning is considered a long-term accumulation event where you consistently buy shares in the market, investments, or real estate with the goal of accumulating enough to enjoy a secure retirement," says Sexton.
