“If [this] disappeared off the surface of the globe,
then man would have only four years of life left.”
— Albert Einstein
75 years ago, the world’s greatest genius
predicted the cause of human extinction…
and he was right.
One small company has discovered the
Early investors in this life-saving tech stand
to make 200 to 300 times their money back!
When I first caught wind of the story I’m about to tell you, I didn’t take it seriously.
I’d heard a bit about it on the news, chalked it up to media fear tactics, and brushed it off entirely.
Even when a colleague called me, rattling on about “humankind having a few years left to live” and a “solution to extinction,” I thought he was certifiably insane.
But he insisted that I travel down to Florida and see “it” for myself.
Like I said, I still had my doubts. But this friend of mine has been around the venture capital scene for a while now. He’s been at the root of several successful startups, and he has a very keen eye for profit potential.
So when he labeled this opportunity “the next Facebook,” I decided to listen up.
Looking back, I’m glad I went on that trip. Not only did I discover a massive corporate and government cover-up, but it also led me to one of the most intriguing and profitable investment ventures of my entire career.
But the best part about it is this:
You don’t need to be an insider or a wealthy venture capitalist to own shares.
You’re going to learn everything about this incredible young technology company in just a few minutes.
I’ll introduce you to its CEO and other board members — all dedicated to bringing this world-changing technology to fruition before it’s too late.
And I’ll show you how this company, and the patented processes it’s created, could return between 200 and 300 times the original investment to those who nail the ground floor early.
Sounds like wishful thinking, right? Well, what if I told you that those projections are on the low, conservative side?
The opportunity is just that big.
But first, let me explain why this opportunity is so urgent.
You see, it was on that trip to Florida that I met Jim.
Jim isn’t a venture capitalist, a tech genius, or a cutting-edge entrepreneur.
Since the 1950s, Jim and his family have made their livings as beekeepers.
The first time we spoke, Jim told me how it all started.
Jim borrowed $15 from his parents, and with that money, he made the first step toward what would be a relatively unassuming but successful and respectful livelihood.
As his business matured, he began leasing out his 5,300 hives to nearby farmers to help pollinate their fields.
Jim was earning a good living. In fact, he was living the life.
He was making an honest wage and doing something he loved — what more can you ask for?
Bees aren’t just productive; they’re profitable, too. They’re profitable for Jim, the agriculture business, and the entire global economy.
Bees are a commodity valued at $15 billion annually — and that’s just in the United States.
Bees pollinate fruits, nuts, seeds, and other essentials foods. Those food products account for $1 trillion of global agriculture sales annually.
The 200 workers bees in a single one of Jim’s hives can pollinate 100,000 plants in a single day.
That pollination is responsible for one out of every three bites of food you eat.
It’s not hard to figure out: No bees means no food. So if the bees go, we’re going with them.
Here’s the Scary Part: Einstein’s Extinction
is Already Under Way
Bees are dying everywhere. They are dying quickly and in large numbers.
Unless you’re a beekeeper or a high-ranking individual in corporate agriculture, you’re not getting the full story.
One bee expert in Colorado was asked, “How long until disaster strikes?”
“How long? It isn’t a question of ‘how long’ anymore. The disaster is here.”
Let’s get back to Jim…
Between 2006 and 2013, Jim saw his colonies deplete from 5,300 to fewer than 300.
Starting in 2006 and in each year after, Jim repeatedly lost half of his bees.
Entire colonies were disappearing, leaving vacant hives strewn across his property.
Even in the hives that were still occupied, Jim clearly noticed that the bees just weren’t producing as much honey.
In his 40 years of beekeeping, he’d never seen anything like it.
Jim tried everything he could — every farming and beekeeping technique up his sleeve — but nothing worked.
Earlier this year, Jim was forced to sell his 112-acre farm — a property that had been in his family for three generations.
Jim’s story is not unique.
There are almost a quarter of a million beekeepers in the United States, and every single one of them is experiencing the same struggle.
Like me, you probably hear this story and feel sympathy for Jim. He’s a hardworking man, and he doesn’t deserve this.
But this is bigger than Jim.
If the bee population continues to uncontrollably die off in this mysterious way, the human race isn’t far behind.
Think about it like this…
Like I already said, bees are to thank for one out of every three bites of food you take, and I don’t just mean fruits and vegetables.
The meat and poultry we eat? They depend on bees, too. Bees pollinate the grasses that feed our cows and the corn that feeds our chickens.
The signs will start small. Maybe you’ll notice produce looking a little low at the grocery store or the price of your meat and poultry increasing due to supply issues.
Unless something changes, it’s only a matter of time until you, too, feel Jim’s struggle — or worse.
Fortunately, a change is coming.
As I said before, I was introduced to one Toronto-based company that found a solution so simple yet so innovative that it actually has the potential to cure the mysterious disorder that’s destroying millions of square miles of farmland across the world.
While the agriculture industry quietly reels and panics, and while the government scrambles to keep this impending catastrophe under wraps, one biotech startup, headquartered just outside of Toronto, Canada, did what should have been impossible.
Few outside of the agriculture industry know about this breakthrough, but once this startup gets its patented technology into full-scale commercialization, it is likely to change the face of traditional farming forever.
Shareholders of this company stand to make millions in profits as it goes from early production runs — which are already under way — into full-scale distribution.
More importantly, a worldwide catastrophe could be averted.
During my trip to Toronto, I chatted with the CEO and toured the facilities.
I saw a production center — which looked more like a high-tech lab — where they cultivated their unique, proprietary product…
The very product that will soon pull the rug out from under the feet of the entire agriculture technology business establishment and, for once, offer farmers like Jim a completely harmless solution to this catastrophe.
You’re going to learn everything about this incredible young technology company in just a few minutes.
But first, I want to show you just how big this problem is… and, in turn, how big this opportunity is…
And why one Silicon Valley hotshot is saying, “AgTech is like the next Facebook. It’s the a-ha moment when you realize that data in agriculture is worth so much.”
Mankind’s Oldest Industry: Corrupt and Extinct
When it comes to global industries, none are as important or take up more raw real estate than the oldest industry of them all: agriculture.
Agriculture is the beginning of commerce and civilization as we know it. It’s the reason mankind transitioned from nomadic to settled society.
Even more important than its history is its profitability.
“Agriculture is large enough and inefficient enough that there is opportunity for people to come in and improve it,” says Todd Dagres, co-founder of San Francisco-based venture capital firm Spark Capital.
To illustrate, let’s start with a look at the great state of South Carolina.
Two-thirds of the land in South Carolina is covered with forest. The majority of the remaining property is comprised of farms.
Throughout the rich history of South Carolina, dating back to when it was just a colony, agriculture has been the backbone of the state’s economy and development.
During the Great Recession of 2008, South Carolina’s agriculture industry kept the state afloat. It accounted for $34 billion that year.
It kept the state’s economy alive while the rest of the country nearly fell into financial oblivion.
Eight years later, South Carolina’s agriculture and forestry industries account for an economic impact of more than $42 billion annually.
South Carolina’s goal is to achieve a $50 billion industry by 2020.
And this is just ONE STATE.
Nationwide, the agribusiness industry has been skyrocketing — yes, even through the recession.
In fact, the agriculture industry has been steadily growing since its inception nearly 13,000 years ago.
The reason is simple. In fact, you’ve probably already figured it out: There are more people to feed than ever.
In just 35 years, our planet’s population will jump from 6 billion to 9 billion people. The demand for food and agricultural services will increase directly with it, and so will profits throughout the entire industry…
Except for one tiny catch.
Right now, as you read this, there’s a mysterious systemic disorder that’s destroying the world’s most important crops. In the U.S., those crops translate to $130 billion.
This mysterious disorder threatens the agriculture industry, our planet’s ecosystem, and mankind’s very existence.
The Deadliest Problems Start With
the Smallest Symptoms
I think to explain this best, we need to get back to Jim…
The reason Jim moved his hives to Florida was to avoid something that’s long been known to cause a host of problems in all areas of agribusiness, including the crucial natural pollination system, the bees themselves.
They’re called neonicotinoid (NEE-oh-NIC-eh-ti-noid) pesticides, and let me tell you, this nasty stuff belongs in a class all its own.
When used as seed treatments, these pesticides, known commonly in the agribusiness as neonic pesticides, have been known to actually transfer directly to a plant’s DNA.
Begin the trickle-down effect…
It starts with pollen residues and nectars that also contain the pesticide.
Then it transfers to the insects that pollinate the plants, as well as the wildlife that eats those insects.
These pesticides affect nerve cells and cause paralysis and loss of cognitive functions in insects.
A study just this year found that 90% of honey tested positive for neonic pesticides.
So if you’ve consumed honey in the past year… well, you can probably figure it out.
Rain cannot wash these poison chemicals away.
Neither can your kitchen faucet.
Actually, the poison isn’t even on your food. It’s in it.
So unless you’re growing your own food or eating strictly organic… well, I think you can figure that out, too.
And they’re way more common than you think.
Even the home gardening products you may use to protect your own backyard crops are increasingly adopting neonic-based agents.
You can look at the label and check it out for yourself.
So actually, there’s a good chance you have neonic chemicals in your garage or under the kitchen sink.
You probably use insecticides to keep away the pests that wreak havoc on your garden.
The only problem is that these insecticides wreak a different kind of havoc on our environment and our health.
Despite the numerous studies and proof of the danger they are inflicting, large agribusiness has taken to extremes to deny the effects of these pesticides. Its strategies are shameful — think Big Tobacco-style tactics.
Now, before I go any further, I want to make something clear.
I care about our environment. I recycle and try to reduce my carbon footprint when I can.
That being said, I am in no way an activist or an environmental extremist.
You won’t see me chained to an old tree or standing in front of bulldozers.
But listen, folks: It really doesn’t matter where you fall on the spectrum of environmentalism.
This time, it isn’t just about the environment. It’s about us.
Follow the Money Trail… And It’s a Long One
It’s no secret that politicians across this country are propped up by financial contributions from large corporations.
The agribusiness industry as a whole contributes almost $116 million annually to various political campaigns.
When we break this financing down further, we can see that within the agribusiness sector, the most contributions to political campaigns come from Agricultural Services/Products
This means those companies responsible for fertilizers, insecticides, pesticides, chemicals, modified seeds, and more.
In exchange, agro-giants like Bayer CropScience, Monsanto, and Dow AgroSciences have politicians in their pockets to sway decisions in their favor or turn a blind eye to questionable activity and dangerous products…
Bayer CropScience is the agrochemical giant responsible for the creation of these chemicals, which were released in the early 2000s.
Now, they are still produced by Bayer, as well as Syngenta and Dow AgroSciences.
Monsanto, Bayer, and Dow use the systemic chemicals in the herbicides, pesticides, and seeds they sell to farmers, even though it’s been proven that they are poisonous to our ecosystem and our health.
It’s honestly no surprise to me or anyone else familiar with the names I just listed that these firms are blatantly poisoning animal and human populations.
They’ve done it before.
Starting in the 1950s, Dow Chemical and the Monsanto Corporation began producing herbicide compounds that proved effective for clearing dense foliage and bushes. The herbicide was used in the United States and abroad.
Years later, the public discovered that the herbicide contained dangerous levels of TCDD, an incredibly toxic dioxin compound.
That chemical compound, produced by Bayer, Monsanto, Dow, and others, destroyed the lives of generations.
Like the neonics that we’re seeing now, that herbicide was systemic. It couldn’t be rinsed off. It contaminated soil, water, animals, and people.
That herbicide was called Agent Orange.
One of the most infamous chemicals ever introduced into the environment.
2 Major Problems; One Simple Solution
That’s why I had to take another trip last weekend, this time up north to Toronto.
I had heard about a small company up there and had to see if the rumors were true.
Like I said before, I had my doubts.
And the reason I was so skeptical was because I knew the problem it was tackling was two-pronged.
Not only did the company need to find a viable alternative to these deadly neonic chemicals, but there was another, more basic issue: effective application.
You see, regardless of their chemical composition, just the way we deliver pesticide and fertilizer agents has proven to be grossly inefficient.
You’ve probably seen small planes flying over crop fields, spraying for miles.
From your perspective or the pilot’s, it might seem like that field is completely covered in the chemical.
But if you take a closer look, it’s the soil, not the insects or even the plants, that is being saturated.
Only about 10% to 20% of all chemical agents released from crop-dusting aircraft ever hit their target.
This causes a few problems…
First, it means that a huge portion of the pest population is still out there, wreaking havoc on crops.
More importantly, though, it means that certain pesticides, if used repeatedly in the same place, become useless.
Insects that survive the spray are developing resistance to pesticides.
Through natural selection, that genetic resiliency is passed down to future generations, and I probably don’t need to tell you that insect populations reproduce much faster than humans.
Farmers have tried to combat this problem by spraying higher doses or spraying more frequently.
Unfortunately, that’s only intensified the issue.
Thanks to these ineffective spray methods, the Colorado potato beetle is now known to be resistant to more than 52 insecticides. And that’s only one example.
Because of resistance like this, we’re seeing crop yields fall while the demand for food is rapidly increasing.
Which brings us back to the original problem: growing population in the face of decreasing production capacity.
Remember, our population is growing by 210,000 people per day.
In 35 years, we’re going to see the global population jump from 6 billion to 9 billion people.
Traditional agribusiness is barely able to keep up with how rapidly this resistance is evolving.
But what if pesticides didn’t have to be evil, toxic, or ineffective?
What if we could develop a strategy that was 100% effective at stopping destructive insects but caused no harm to bees, the environment, or ourselves?
Big Things Start Small
Well, folks, that brings me back to my trip to Toronto and the genius I witnessed there.
I’m going to tell you about this company for a few reasons.
I’ll admit it: Yes, I am deeply scared of what’s going to happen if the bee population keeps dying.
I’m also scared of the unknown effects of the toxic pesticides we’re all ingesting every day. The effects on our bodies are still a complete mystery.
I’m scared for farmers and people like Jim, who, despite how hard they fight, are having their livelihoods snatched from their hands.
I’m also scared of large agribusinesses dominating one of the most lucrative industries in the market today and using their positions to deceive and poison the public.
These companies have proven over and over that they will not hesitate to release harmful poison in exchange for a price. They’ve also proven that they will go to any extent to deny their harmful actions.
But when I think about all these things now, I guess I should be saying that I used to be scared.
I’m not scared anymore, because I just stumbled upon a company that is about to disrupt the entire agriculture industry.
I’m on the edge of my seat with this one, because all signs are pointing to the inevitable fact that this company is on the verge of turning the entire agriculture industry on its head.
I’m not sure about you, but when one of the most successful venture capitalists on the West Coast calls this opportunity “the next Facebook,” I listen.
It feels like one of those game-changing opportunities — the once-in-a-lifetime chance to secure a piece of an industry just as it’s getting started on the path to turning one of the world’s biggest industries upside down.
Revolutionary Products From
Let me put this in common terms: Just imagine a company that invented and perfected an engine that could power the fastest racecar but required no fuel or charging.
An engine better than anything known today but, at the same time, completely harmless to the environment.
Now imagine that this company was already producing this engine and getting ready to start supplying it to commercial and private users all over the world.
Well, that’s exactly where this company is in its life cycle… at the very start, but already looking to change the entire landscape of its industry.
I’d like to emphasize that point… It’s very early for them. Which means things like revenues and earnings aren’t comparable to the big household names.
But that’s exactly the point.
Any seasoned investor will tell you that jumping on the bandwagon of those companies is not how you’re going to get the big returns.
Buying shares of a company that’s already grown into a multibillion-dollar giant might feel safe and secure, but there’s simply no way you’ll ever see another meteoric jump in share value like the one this company is set to make in the coming year.
To say it plainly, for the biggest profits, you have to get in early, before the rest of the investing world knows what’s happening.
That goes for any company… But for one that’s set to disrupt the industry the way this one is, getting in early can net you profits you’ve never dreamed of.
Think about the impact Netflix had on the cable and DVD rental industries.
Think about what happened to the CD market when iTunes came around, or how Amazon entirely changed the way we shop.
CDs? Catalogs? They’re basically extinct now.
Well, that’s precisely the sort of dynamic I’m seeing here.
This relatively unknown company is about to take this industry by storm, and with patents in place and its technology highly protected (I wasn’t even allowed to photograph its production line when I visited the facility), you’d better believe that a game-changing moment is approaching.
Here’s the sweetest part of the deal: You don’t need to be an insider or a wealthy venture capitalist to own shares.
Unlike most early-stage tech companies, which are usually privately held until a huge, billion-dollar IPO, this one is already public, and it trades for mere pennies per share.
It’s not often that we come across a play like this — where returns could average in the thousands (if not hundreds of thousands) of dollars.
This company isn’t just offering a solution to the dangerous pesticide issue. It’s also offering an opportunity to make early investors incredibly wealthy. I wouldn’t be surprised if, in the near future, people were talking about this company in the same way we just talked about Netflix.
But before we get into the numbers, I should probably tell you more about this company. You probably want to know what it does and why I feel so strongly about it.
Let’s get back to my earlier question:
What if we could develop a method that was 100% effective at getting rid of destructive insects but caused no harm to bees, the environment, or ourselves?
Well, folks, this is no longer a question of “if.”
After my trip to Toronto, I realized it’s already happened.
This new delivery system is organic and waterless. It reduces cost and environmental impact.
It will deliver non-toxic pesticides and fertilizers directly to the flower — and only to the flower.
The system is able to operate every day and only requires minute amounts of the pesticide for each application.
It requires zero labor and zero equipment besides some basic plastic trays.
This proprietary system is backed by 20 years of research, followed by almost a decade of successful trials.
It is on the verge of commercialization. In fact, the company just announced $1.6 million in private commitments.
Even more encouraging is the fact that three multinational companies are currently undergoing trial runs of the system.
But that doesn’t even surprise me, because this technology is expected to generate up to 70% gross margin on sales for world staple crops.
What company wouldn’t want to undergo a trial?
I was told all of this information — almost word for word — while I was on my trip to visit this firm.
After I heard all of these statistics, my only question was, “How?”
I had to know how this was possible. How did this company develop a strategy that had eluded big agribusiness for so many years?
I probably shouldn’t tell you, but I will anyway. I’m going to tell you what they told me…
I’m not kidding, folks.
I directly asked the CEO how the company managed to solve the problems of poisonous chemicals, failing pesticides, and the widespread annihilation of the bee population, and his response was one word:
Earlier, I mentioned that bees were the most valuable workforce in the world.
A single hive averages between 200 and 300 worker bees. Those worker bees pollinate 100,000 plants in a single day.
And unlike spraying equipment and aircraft, the bees hit their targets with a 100% accuracy rate.
It might seem obvious now that we’re talking about it, but why not use those worker bees?
This firm has developed a combination of ingredients that allows bees to carry crop controls (pesticides), organic pesticides, etc. to crops during their outbound flights.
Proprietary trays are attached to hives so that on their way out, bees will gather the intended substances and then transfer them to each plant they pollinate.
I hate to sound corny here, but it’s basically a “two birds, one stone” scenario: the bees will make these travels regardless.
If we can utilize those travels without hurting them but while benefiting from them… well, folks, I think we can call this a breakthrough.
Now, let me be clear… controlled insect pollination isn’t a new industry.
Beekeepers like Jim have been raising honeybees for just this purpose for many years.
And no other insect has proven to be as industrious or as effective as the bee.
They help plants and trees exchange pollen in order to reproduce — so beekeepers essentially just augment a natural process.
Close to 70% of the produce we consume relies on this natural pollination.
100% Natural Product; 100% Natural Delivery
But this company has taken it a step further and has enlisted bees as a 100% effective, 100% environmentally safe delivery system for its groundbreaking line of beneficial organic compounds.
And the bees it’s using aren’t our domestic honeybees. Instead, they’re commercially available bumblebees that, aside from being immune to colony collapse disorder, are also non-stinging and non-invasive in new environments.
However, it’s what they’ll be delivering that’s got the likes of Monsanto and Bayer nervous and awake at night.
You see, this company’s insecticides and fertilizers aren’t chemically synthesized… rather, they’re grown.
Called “beneficial fungus,” this line of pesticides doesn’t enter a plant’s DNA the way a neonic agent would.
It doesn’t enter the plant at all, in fact.
Instead, it creates a physical block to any intruder — not affecting the crop negatively at all.
It actually does quite the opposite. It’s called “beneficial fungus” because it’s proven to help a crop grow and survive.
Tomatoes and other vegetables applied with a beneficial fungus didn’t just remain untouched by parasites, but also proved to be resistant to decay — therefore allowing for a longer shelf life.
In a country where more than 40% of produce is thrown away before it’s consumed or purchased, that’s an added benefit worth billions of dollars in and of itself.
The technology I’m telling you about has already proven effective among apples, strawberries, tomatoes, pears, sunflowers, canola seeds, and plenty of other vegetables.
There are approximately 60,000 acres of strawberries grown in the U.S. — which translates into about $110 million in potential savings and revenue increases with universal implementation of this proprietary system.
It’s backed by 20 years of research and nearly a decade of successful trials.
And today, it’s rapidly approaching commercialization.
Compared to traditional fungicides, which stunt plant growth and lead to resistance and unwanted chemicals on food products, this system actually results in a larger and healthier plant.
Trials in Florida have resulted in much healthier plants, producing 30% more yield with zero fungicide spraying.
Including some of the biggest, healthiest strawberries you’ve ever seen.
In trials conducted on Canadian sunflowers, this new method was able to demonstrate not only excellent control of plant diseases, but also significantly higher yields of 27%.
This translates from 1,600 lbs. per acre to 2,300 lbs., or about $450 more in revenue per acre.
If this new technique were universally adopted, it would mean a potential $9.9 billion increase in revenue and decrease in losses in Europe alone.
