The purpose of present work is to study medicinally active substances present in ethanol?extract obtained from roots of Asparagus racemosus. Preliminary Phytochemical screening of the extracts revealed the presence of Alkaloids, Carbohydrates, Glycosides, Phenolic compounds, tannins, Saponins, Steroids and Flavonoids. The presence of these bioactive constituents is associated with the antibacterial activity of the plant. The root extracts of Asparagus racemosus solvented by ethanol, showed the spectrum of inhibition on Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis, Staphylococcus werneri, Pseudomonas putida, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Proteus mirabilis by Cylinder plate method. The observations revealed significant zone of inhibition and supports to antibacterial activity
