In this study, the antimicrobial activity of Echinophora tenuifolia and Raphanus sativus extracts were tested against some pathogen microorganisms. Plant leaves were reduced to powder with liquid nitrogen. Three solvents were used for extraction. Disc diffusion method was used to test antimicrobial activity. Ten different microorganisms were used. After incubation zone diameters were measured and evaluated. Both plants extracts discovered effective against four microorganisms with similar zone diameter. Methanol extracts of Echinophora tenuifolia L. showed more effect while ethyl acetate extracts of Raphanus sativus L. were more effective.
