Abstract: Over the past few decades with the growth in cellular services all over the world; a noticeable observation comes in front regarding the life span of birds and growth of crops. This is because of obvious reason of increase in microwave presence in our atmosphere. The cellular phones mostly work at 945 MHz frequency. The objective of this study is to investigate the changes in growth rate and germination of mustard plants after exposure of different amount of microwaves in power and duration. The observations for a period of ten days using microwaves treated and untreated soul were carried out. The other control variables such as temperature, humidity, sun light and level of gases (CO2 , N2 , and O2 ) were maintained almost same for all the observations. The investigations have shown that the plants grown with microwave exposed soil behaved differently.
