The seasonal variation of water soluble extractive alcohol soluble extractive and ether soluble extractive have been investigated in leaves, wood and bark of Sesbania rostrata , Sesbania exaltata and Sesbania sesban . Comparative account of water soluble extractive of leaves, wood and bark of Sesbania rostrata was showed high level (range from 3.53 to 6.43 %) than Sesbania exaltata (range from 3.26 to 6 .02 %) and Sesbania sesban (range from 2.73 to 5.67 %) in all seasons. Alcohol soluble extractive of leaves of Sesbania rostrata showed higher (range from 6.97 to 7.78 %) and lower in bark of Sesbania sesban (range from 3.90 to 4.34 %). Ether soluble extractive of leaves of Sesbania rostrata showed higher (range from 3.90 to 4.43 %) and lower in bark of Sesbania sesban (range from 1.85 to 2.11 %).
