    Introduction: Current project was targeted the extraction and assay of antimicrobial drug resistance from the peels of lemon (Citrus limonum) and orange (Citrus reticulata). Strips were dried and against microbial metabolites were extricated. Materials and Methods: Extraction was finished by solvents such as ethanol, phenol, and (CH3)2CO. Test life forms were developed on reasonable culture media by “Spread plate strategy.” Concentrates were exposed to microbial defenselessness measure by “Agar well dispersion technique.” The MIC is identified and also by sequential weakening strategy. Results and Discussion: Every one of the concentrates of lemon and orange was observed to be viable against the utilized bacterial and contagious pathogens. Phenol, lemon, and orange extracts shown maximum zone of inhibition of nearly 15 mm in Salmonella sp. Conclusion: Isopropyl alcohol extract of lemon shown less inhibition zone in fungus Penicillium gladioli.
