The present study was conducted to evaluate the antibacterial study of the medicinal plant Trigonella foenum crude extract and its subsequent solvent soluble fractions against six bacterial strains like Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeuroginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella typhi, Erwinia carotovora and Agrobacterium tumifaciens by determining zone of inhibition. The results revealed that all fractions except water fraction showed promising inhibitory activity against Escherichia coli and Staphylococccus aureus. Chloroform fraction showed activity of 19mm and ethyl acetate fraction show activity of 17mm against Escherichia coli while the same fractions showed activity of 18mm each against Staphylococccus aureus. The chloroform fraction show excellent activity of 19mm against Erwinia carotovora. The chloroform and ethyl acetate fractions were active against all bacterial strains and show excellent activity.
