Engineers make wearable sensors for plants, enabling measurements of water use in crops

The tool making these water measurements possible is a tiny graphene sensor that can be taped to plants — researchers have dubbed it a “plant tattoo sensor.” Graphene is a wonder material. It’s a carbon honeycomb just an atom thick, it’s great at conducting electricity and heat, and it’s strong and stableĀ …
