The methanol leaf extracts of Acacia nilotica, Sida cordifolia, Tinospora cordifolia, Withania somnifer and Ziziphus mauritiana showed significant antibacterial activity against Bacillus subtilis, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas fluorescens, Staphylococcus aureus and Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. mahacearum and antifungal activity against Aspergillus flavus, Dreschlera turcica and Fusarium verticillioides when compare to root/bark extracts. A. nilotica and S. cordifolia leaf extract showed highest antibacterial activity against B. subtilis. and Z. mauritiana leaf extract showed significant activity against X. a. pv. malvacearum. Root and leaf extract of S. cordifolia recorded significant activity against all the test bacteria A. nilotica bark and leaf extract showed significant antifungal activity against A. flavus, Ziziphus mauritiana and Tinospora cordifolia recorded significant antifungal activity against D. turcica The methanol extract of Sida cordifolia exhibited significant antifungal activity against F. verticillioides.
