The current investigation relates to development of a biocide from the soft core of banana trunk and leaves of Aegle marmelos. The extract, under in-vitro conditions, inhibits the growth of two important human enteric pathogens (HEPs), i.e. Escherichia coli and Salmonella typhi. The biocide could be used to treat fresh farm produce before shipment. This would ensure that the HEP load on such fresh produce is reduced and they are fit for human consumption.



Aegle marmelos, antibacterial activity; banana pseudostem, colony forming units, HEPs.
