Abstract: Phytochemicals are produced in plants through primary metabolites or secondary metabolites. They play a vital role in the lives of the plants. In this experiment seeds of Foeniculum vulgare Mill. Were germinated and when the plants increased in length, 4 sets were made, 1 set for control and 3 sets for giving the treatment of beet root extract (3.3%, 16.5% and 33%). After 21 days the plants were removed from the soil. Aqueous extract was prepared from the plants and phytochemical analysis was done. Phenols, tannins, terpenoids and flavonoids were found to be present. The aqueous extracts were used for studying thin layer chromatography. The Retention factor value for control set was observed to be 0 whereas the other sets showed the Retention factor value similar to that of ferulic acid.
