CropX

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. Land is not uniform, and so different parts of any ?eld require different amounts of irrigation. Current irrigation systems water ?elds evenly, thereby wasting water and energy and repressing crop yield, by inadvertently overwatering parts of a ?eld while under-watering other parts. This also results in harmful leachate and runoff of fertilizer and pesticide chemicals, which impact the environment. CropX?s service is the world?s ?rst 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 ?eld. CropX?s technology was developed by a team of world-leading scientists and has been validated on-farm over the past ?ve years. And while the underlying science and technology are complex ? using the system is as simple and intuitive as using your smart phone. Importantly ? it is also risk free. There are no set-up fees or capital costs, and you only pay after water and energy cost savings have been demonstrated.

Pycno

Pycno started in the UK in 2014 as an idea, to develop innovative products for agricultural purposes. Throughout our interactions with growers, farm managers and agronomists, it was clear that a quick and easy solution to get data off of the field, visualize, and process it, was crucial. After countless prototypes, in mid-2015, we started developing a new all-in-one sensor. This sensor would incorporate all the pieces that are usually sold as separate parts, the sensing elements (such as a soil sensor), the RTU and SIM, and the receiving software. Because we started from scratch, we saw a lot of the issues that plagued the industry such as dated 2G and CDMA modems, no APIs, and convoluted RTU firmware versions that were incompatible to various sensors. For a new farmer, that wants to use sensors in their growing cycle, the state of the ecosystem is very intimidating. A typical grower has to gather the potential sensors types, RTUs, and software he/she wants to use, and contact each vendor to ask for compatibility. Pycno's sensors allow friction-less installation and data collection, together with a powerful software, an API and export tools, because you own your data!Fast forward to today and we are very excited to offer 3 different lengths of sensors (2G and 4G), LoRa capabilities and a weather station (coming soon). We are currently in more than 26 countries and looking for partners to join us on our mission to modernize data collection in the field.
