About Us:

CEEDSTM (Crop, Expansion, Encapsulation and Delivery System), developed by NEF, is an ‘artificial seed’ technology for use with feedstock crops such as napier grass, sugar cane, energy cane, Arundo donax and Miscanthus. These crops are amongst the highest yielding feedstock crops available, but typically cannot be established using conventional seed routes. They have always been established using standard vegetative propagation, which is difficult to scale up and only under very specific conditions can be very large scale, such as sugar cane. CEEDSTM technology is applicable to all energy grass crops supplied by NEF, with wider applications for other vegetatively propagated crops such as sugar cane, where it can be considerably cheaper and more convenient.
CEEDSTM planting units are encapsulated and coated pre-grown vegetative tissue, in a soilless medium, greenhouse grown for maximum health. Each planting unit is about the size of a wine cork. They can be planted without hand labor at conventional drill rates, with either NEF equipment designed to establish in conventional, min till or no till situations or some existing on-farm planting equipment.

About NEF   
New Energy Farms (NEF) is a feedstock development and supply company for large-scale industries such as energy, sugar, animal feed and fiber. These feedstocks are supplied from perennial crops (mainly grasses), which are amongst the highest yielding crops per acre. The crops produce high yields of quality feedstock at a low financial and energy cost, with a strong environmental profile. The raw material from NEF established plantations can be processed by end users into products such as biofuels, or commodity products such as sugar. For these end markets feedstock cost is a significant if not majority component of the end product cost. NEF have 18 years commercial and technical experience in this market, and have developed technology required by customers, which is exclusive to NEF and overcomes barriers that have previously made scale up impractical.
