Abstract

The existance of wireless technology indirectly take huge positive and negative effect on all organism on this earth especially plant. On previous research held by Racuciu, Lftode, and Miclauss said there is an effect on corn plant growth which treated by electromagnetic waves in 1 GHz frequency. The objective of this research is to prove the effect of electromagnetic waves on the plant in microgravity environment. In this research, 2.4 GHz electromagnetic waves were used and the testing environment will be used clinostat. The result on this research proved that there is an effect between electromagnetic waves 2.4 GHz on plant especially rice plant in microgravity environment. The main effect that we discovered is faster growth than normal condition.
