Researching this technology unlocks the Tier 2 Farm structure for the player's civilization. This is a comparatively modest upgrade; a Tier 2 Farm is only able to support 5,000 extra Population compared to a Tier 1 structure. However, farming is labour-intensive; planets with very small or very large populations will be particularly affected by this. Hence, it is likely that players will need to upgrade their Farms at some point in order to free up workers.
When making upgrades, remember that the structure will not support any population while the upgrade is queued. Taking too many Farms offline at once will cause the planet to become overpopulated, and colonists will start to die off. A work-around is to build additional Tier 1 Farms, to provide extra capacity to cover upgrades.
