LONDON, Feb. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CropX will present at CleanEquity Monaco 2016 on March 3rd & 4th at the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco.

CleanEquity Monaco is an annual invitation-only event hosted by Innovator Capital, the London based specialist investment bank.

Other partners and sponsors include Prince Albert II of Monaco's Foundation, Covington & Burling, Cranfield University, Parkview, PR Newswire, Gillamor Stephens, Enereau, the Monte-Carlo SBM, The Monaco Economic Board, International University of Monaco and the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco.

CropX has been identified by an expert panel as one of the world's most innovative cleantech companies and has been selected to present to senior financial and strategic cleantech investors, policy makers, legislators, end users and media.

CropX is an Ag-analytics company that empowers farmers to grow more crop with less water, using a simple, scalable software-as-a-service solution integrated with wireless sensors, that optimizes irrigation, applying different amounts of water to different parts of a field.

CropX addresses a two and a half trillion-dollar problem: farmers must grow more, with less. Within 35 years, global crop yield must double in order to feed the world's 9 billion population. And water, which is used to irrigate and grow over 40% of our food, is rapidly running scarce.

CropX's underlying concept is simple: Land is not uniform, it is not completely flat and its soil structure is never uniform across a field. Virtually all current irrigation systems irrigate fields uniformly, thereby over-irrigating parts of a field and under-irrigating other parts.

CropX is the world's first solution that automates this process: it analyses the field, and then automatically determines and applies daily just the right amount of irrigation to different parts of the same field. Our technology has been validated in the field for over six years demonstrating up to 25% water and energy savings and corresponding crop yield enhancement.

CropX is led by a seasoned management team and headed by Isaac Bentwich M.D. a serial successful entrepreneur, is backed by some of the leading Ag-Tech VC firms, including Finistere Ventures and Eric Schmidt's Innovation Endeavors.
