Author(s): S. P Hiremath, H. K. S Swamy, Shrishailappa Badami, S Meena

Four successive solvent extractions, of Striga densifiora, Benth and Striga orobanchioides, Benth have been studied for their antimicrobial activity against certain pathogenic and nonpathogenic bacteria and fungi using the cupplate method. The petroleum ether, chloroform and ethanol extracts of both plants showed antibacterial activity against most of the organisms, whereas the aqueous extracts were found to have no effect against most bacteria. Of the eight extracts, only the petroleum ether extract of Striga orobanchioides has marked antifungal activity against Aspergillus niger.
