The present work deals with the antifungal activity and phytochemical screening of the aqueous leaf extract of Bauhinia racemosa & Dolichandrone falcata. Antifungal activities were found against vegetable diseases of fungi like Alternaria alternata, Colletotrichum capsici and Phytophthora infestans by using antimicrobial assay method. Significant inhibition was recorded in both the plant extract against Alternaria alternata and Colletotrichum capsici were it was less effective to Phytophthora infestans. The phytochemical screening of Bauhinia racemosa and Dolichandrone falcata showed the presence of tannins, alkaloids, glycosides, steroids and saponins.
