Biotic stress mediated effects on amount of tocopherol, ascorbic acid and nutrients like sodium and potassium ion of Ficus palmata were investigated in the current study. Present study revealed that the amount of tocopherol in healthy leaf was greater than diseased leaf. However, the amount of ascorbic acid in disease leaf (0.4060.0108) was more as compare to healthy leaf (0.4470.0386) of F. palmata. The amount of tocopherol in healthy leaf was 2.09150.4188 and in diseased leaf it was 1.7860.1383. On the other hand, the amount of sodium in both healthy and diseased leaf was similar (1.3330.333).The amount of potassium in healthy leaf was more (42.002.081) as compared to the diseased leaf (33.3310.929). Greater the amount of ascorbic acid and tocopherol in plants more will be radicle scavenging activity and also helpful in pharmacological industry, drug production and health care. 

Key words:    Medicinal Plants, Biotic Stress, Tocopherol, Ascorbic Acid, Nutrients
