Abstract: Every plant has a property to react to internal as well as external stimuli. There are many electromagnetic radiations present in environment to which plants react such as electrical fields, magnetic fields, and electromagnetic (EM) fields. A large number of products and applications in our day to day life make use of various forms of electromagnetic energy. One such form of energy is high voltage and high frequencies EM waves. High voltage means electrical energy at voltages which is sufficient to cause harm or death upon living things. The electromagnetic field from high power transmission lines affects the growth of plants. The growth and health status of plants can be accessed from the electrical properties such as resistance or impedance of its leaves. In this paper, the effect of high voltage on Aloe Vera leaves has been reported. Aloe Vera plant is chosen due to its various properties and uses in dermatology. Investigations were carried out to study the effect of high voltage on the resistance of the Aloe Vera leaves. The analysis of the results showed considerable amount of change in the resistance of the leaves due to high voltage and high frequencies.
