The EPR spectral properties of non-irradiated and gamma-irradiated dry plants, cress seeds and mistletoe, have been studied with electron paramagnetic resonance method and the differences between non-irradiated and irradiated samples have been determined within this study. It has been shown that EPR spectra of these non-irradiated samples have very weak signal. But these plants have an intense EPR resonance line after irradiation with g value of 2.0046 ±0.0005.
