Abstract: Microwaves spans a range from 300 MHz to 300 GHz. Although these waves have been used in many electronic appliances for the welfare of human beings, they may be very harmful for living beings. The bad effects of microwaves have also been investigated for several crops. This paper investigates the effect of microwaves treated water on the growth rate of Brassica seeds. During investigations, the other control variables such as temperature, humidity, sun light and level of gases (CO2 , N2 , and O2 ) were maintained constant. It has been observed that microwaved water exposed for a specific power level and duration showed better growth rate as compared to normal water for the development of Brassica seeds.
