BRUSSELS and TEL AVIV, Israel, April 20, 2022 — Aliaxis, which enables access to water and energy through fluid management solutions, has signed an investment agreement and will be partnering with CropX, a provider of agtech solutions for full farm management.

Through this partnership, Aliaxis and CropX will collaborate in the field of data driven precision irrigation. As irrigated crops, livestock, fisheries, aquaculture and forestry account for roughly 70% of total freshwater withdrawals globally, efficient water usage in agriculture is clearly becoming more and more important.

"Among the focus areas of Aliaxis Next, our recently created division, is 'Water for Food'. With this division, we focus on growth beyond our core business and want to create a next generation of solutions with real societal impact. Partnering with CropX is fully in line with this ambition, as their unique approach allows farmers to monitor both below and above ground crop data, and to significantly increase crop efficiency," says Eric Olsen, CEO of Aliaxis.

"We are very happy to be teaming up with Aliaxis," says Tomer Tzach, CEO of CropX. "It is very exciting for us to get the support of a global leader that offers water and irrigation systems to customers in different parts of the world. It will support our expansion and the further development of our business. I am confident that the advanced digital intelligence we offer will also be beneficial to Aliaxis' agricultural customers."

The financial details of this agreement will not be disclosed.

In March, CropX and Proman, an integrated energy company and nitrogen fertilizer producer, announced a new strategic partnership.
