A noticeable potency of many species of plants present against bacterial and fungal pathogens. Bacterial resistance against antibiotics is consider one among the common problems within the medical world, so one among the foremost important steps in microbiological researches is to seek out a replacement antimicrobial compound with minimal side effects. So the aim of this study is to research the antimicrobial activity of mango (Mangifera indica L.) peel aqueous and organic solvent extracts on some medically important animal pathogens and to work out some phytochemical compounds to be recycled to added in animals ration. Hot and cold aqueous additionally to ethanol extracts of mango (Mangifera indica L.) peel were evaluated for his or her antimicrobial activity against some medically important pathogens isolated from animals and poultry farms (Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aerogenes,, Bacillus cereus and Candida albicans) by agar well diffusion method. Both hot, cold aqueous and ethanol peel extracts showed high antibacterial and antifungal effect against the all examined pathogenic samples. Also, phytochemical compound of aqueous and ethanol peel extracts were determined, results of the chemical tests explain the extracts of mango (Mangifera indica L.) peel contain alkaloids, flavnoids, tannins and saponin compounds. So it might be concluded that the mango (Mangifera indica L.) peel extracts possess remarkable antibacterial activity against gram positive and gram negative bacteria additionally to its antifungal activity against Candida albicans and to be introduced as an alternate to chemical antimicrobial drugs, is required wider investigation also ecologically as recycling of fruits peel are often used as artificial additive in animal ration.
