    In order to increase a plant’s growing efficiency, researchers at Cornell University have invented a microchip sensor that can be inserted into every plant. Once in place, the microchip sends a message to the farmer when water levels dip. Currently, most people use moist readers placed in the soil to determine when watering is needed. The inventors of the sensor say this is not ideal because it is the plant that needs harvesting, not the soil. Their technology makes the process far more precise.
