Abstract
The seasonal variation of total ash, water soluble ash and water  insoluble ash have been investigated leaves , wood and bark of Sesbania rostrata, Sesbania exaltata  and  Sesbania sesban , which are medicinally important. Comparative account of total ash, water soluble ash and water insoluble ash content of bark of Sesbania rostrata showed high level of total ash ( range from 8.96 %  to 9.52  % ) and low level of total ash of leaves of Sesbania sesban ( range 7.06 %  to  % ) .The water soluble ash showed higher level of bark of Sesbania rostrata ( range 3.64 %  to 3.98 % ) and lower in wood of Sesbania sesban ( range 0.59 % to 0.73 % ). Comparative account of water insoluble ash of bark of Sesbania rostrata showed higher (range 5.32 % to 5.54 % ) and lower in the wood of Sesbania sesban ( range 1.28 %  to 1.39 % ).
