CropX is an ag-analytics company that has developed the world’s most advanced adaptive irrigation service, which automatically optimizes irrigation, thereby delivering dramatic crop yield increase and water and energy cost savings to farms.
CropX is a revolutionary software service, integrated with wireless sensors, which saves water and energy and boosts crop yield.
CropX was founded in 2013 by Isaac Bentwich and is based in Tel Aviv, Israel with an additional office in San Francisco, California.
CropX offers an integrated hardware and software system for measuring soil moisture, temperature and electrical conductivity and sending that data to the cloud where it can be accessed from any mobile or fixed device.
CropX’s service is the world’s ﬁrst and only automated adaptive differential irrigation solution, which successfully addresses this challenge. No other product automatically generates daily, accurate, hassle-free, irrigation maps, which apply just the right amount of water to different parts of the same ﬁeld.
CropX’s proprietary science helps farmers better understand water usage across their fields. Its low-cost soil sensors can increase crop yields while simultaneously cutting water usage by one third. In just one irrigation season, CropX sensors were installed on thousands of acres of all major row crops and demonstrated immense value, with early customers across the United States reporting dramatic water, manpower and cost savings, as well as massive crop yield gains.
CropX is backed by investors including Robert Bosch Venture Capital, Kreos Capital, Finistere Ventures, OurCrowd and others. The company raised $10M in its latest funding on Aug 21, 2019. This brings CropX's total funding to $22.9M to-date.
