In our present study, we carried out the antibacterial activity of plant Tridax procumbens L. which belongs to family asteraceae. The aim of the present work was to evaluate scientifically antibacterial potential of Tridax Procumbens L. Extract and its fractions. Extraction has been performed by Soxhlet apparatus with different solvents and then they get fractionated. Fractions of residue and filtrate evaluated for anti-bacterial activity by using agar-well diffusion method. Some of them fractions show remarkable activities against bacteria Escherichia coli & Klebsiella.
