The realization of water as an important and fundamental component requires in photosynthesis, nutritional transport, and to the effective and timely growth of plant leaves. In this work, a novel technique has been presented to determine the electromagnetic parameters of plant leaves. The measurements results of electromagnetic parameters are discussed in detail. Upon a close observation, it has been found both permittivity and a refractive index of fresh leaves showed a decline trend in their peak values from day 1 to 4 due to the rapid evaporation of moisture in tissues of leaves, and variations occurred in the morphological structure of fresh and water-stressed leaves. The technique proposed here can be employed for feasible and non-invasive plant leaves health monitoring.
