Abstract: 

The antagonistic effects that plants have on different microorganisms can be used to protect microorganism from the environment. The Echinochloa crus-galli with a universal growth is found in paddy fields in the North of Iran, named Soroof, in the weed form. In this research, different methanolic, ethanolic and aqueous extract have been provided from Echinochloa crus-galli and their effects on gram positive & gram negative bacteria growth using disk diffusion, well diffusion, plate count, Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) and Minimum Bactericidal Concentration (MBC) method. It concluded that different types of methanolic, ethanolic& aqueous extract inhibited Staphylococcus aureus and Bacillus cereus growth while did not have any effect on Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeroginosa growth.
