Very little research covered the effect of UVC on morphological structure and properties of garden cress (Lepidium sativum Linn.). For this reason, the aim of this work is to study the effect of ultraviolet- C from UV lamp (UVC  2000- 2800 Å) on growth stages (Leg and leaf growth), color, internal structure and secondary metabolites content of Lepidium sativum Linn. The results show that, garden cress plant may die and the color become yellow. Structure (future of formed peaks) and molecular structure (peak position and peak intensity) of garden grass changed after exposure to UVC for different time and distance. The values of total phenol, total Flavonoids, Vitamin E and Vitamin c in extracted garden cress decreased after exposure to UVC for different time and distance. Scavenging activity % (DPPH) and ABTS radical scavenging activity in extracted garden cress increased after exposure to UVC for different time and distance. The medicinal plant (Lepidium sativum Linn.) should protect from UVC radiation for best uses.
