  • Abstract

    Helminth infections remain a major constraint to livestock productivity across all agro-ecological Zones. 1Today, the principal mode for control of gastrointestinal parasites is based on the commercial anthelmintic. However, wide spread increase of anthelmintic resistance, scarcity and high cost especially to farmers of low income in developing countries led to the need of other alternative helminth control methods 2 Among other alternative methods, there is considerable and expanding interest in traditional herbal dewormers.3 In present communication methanolic and aqueous extracts of leaves of Caesalpinia bonducella Linn. Flem were investigated for their anthelmintic activity against Pheretima posthuma and Ascardia galli. Various concentrations were used in the bioassay, which involved paralysis and death time of the worms. Both the extracts showed significant anthelmintic activity.
