We report on the effects of RF/MW on plants.Green Mint plant exposed to different levels ofradiation (from 0.5 to 10.5 μW/cm2) for thispurpose. A USB2000 spectrophotometer wasused to record fluorescence signals from intactleaves.Spectroscopic data (P.I.R and A.R)together with vegetative data (leafdimensions and weight), revealed stressingeffects on plant due to RF/MW in all groupsexcept the control which was free of exposure.
