These studies revealed that the methanolic extract of safflower florets showed varying degree of antibacterial activities ex-cept aqueous extract may be due to the presence of secondary metabolites, the highest zone of inhibition with 21 mm diameter in bacillus whereas lowest 13 mm diameter in Pseudomonas.
