The aqueous extracts of twenty plants were screened by agar diffusion method for their
antibacterial activity against Xanthomonas campestris pv. campestris, a causal organism of black
rot of cabbage and cauliflower. Xanthomonas campestris pv. campestris was found most sensitive
to the leaf extract of Camellia sinensis. Some of the other plants such as Acacia arabicae, Aegle
marmelos, Acacia catechu, Achyranthus asper, Asparagus racemosus, Azadirachta indica,
Callistemon lanceolatus and Acacia fernesiana, also showed the inhibitory effect against the
test bacteria.
