Abstract
Medicinal plants are the wealthy source of antibacterial agents and curative. The selected plant Pogostemon benghalensis (N. Burman) Kuntz, belongs to family lamiaceae. It is found throughout the tropical and sub-tropical region of India. It is annual, aromatic, undershrub, most common in Melghat forming large patches along the river banks. The plant is used as folk medicine, predominantly in the treatment of intestinal disorder and intermittent fever. This paper deals with the investigation on in-vitro antibacterial activity of crude leaf extract of P. benghalensis against selected pathogenic bacterial strains. All the tested bacteria were found to be highly susceptible to the crude extract of P. benghalensis. The most effective activity was observed in methanolic extract with maximum zone of inhibition ranging from 12mm and 9mm against B. subtilis and S. typhi respectively. The aqueous extract shows comparatively less inhibition ranging from 9mm and 8mm in B. subtilis.
