Inexpensive Lab on a Chip Embedded in Plant Stems Can Accurately Measure Soil Moisture Levels, Cornell University Study
Published: Oct 14, 2013
,br> Crop growers, wine grape and other fruit growers, food processors and even concrete makers all benefit from water sensors for accurate, steady and numerous moisture readings. But current sensors are large, may cost thousands of dollars and often must be read manually. Now, Cornell researchers have developed a microfluidic water sensor within a fingertip-sized silicon chip that is a hundred times more sensitive than current devices.
