Abstract: The paper presents 32 medicinally important weed species found in different crop fields along with some other plant species believed to have medicinal properties, which are being used by the rural people, particularly the women in Nalbari district, Assam. These weeds, although considered harmful to the crops, and are eradicated from the crop fields during cultural operation, may be fruitfully utilized to serve the medicinal purposes against various diseases. The herbal recipes recorded in the study may provide ample opportunities to study them critically for their efficacy and also for new drug development.
