The antibacterial activity of trimethyltinbenzoate-4-picoline (an organotin compound) was determined against five bacteria isolated from diseased grape plants (Vitis vinifera, family:Vitaceae). The zones of inhibition were observed, the minimum inhibitory concentrations (MIC) against bacteria that belonged to Pseudomonas, Corynebacterium, Bacillus, Klebsiella and Xanthomonas species were found to be 0.5, 0.8, 2.5, 2.5 and 2.5mg/ml respectively.
