Field grown roots (FGR) and hairy roots (HR) were compared for total phenolics, flavonoids and antioxidant capacity using three different solvents. The aqueous and ethanolic extract showed high phenolic (9.036±0.613) and flavonoids (25.392±0.687) content in HR compared to FGR respectively. High alkaloid content was observed in ethanolic extract of HR (23.628±0.907). The aqueous extract showed maximum DPPH, ABTS and SO radical scavenging antioxidant activity in HR compared to FGR. The highest Frap value (1.88) was observed for aqueous extract in HR. The ethanol and water was found to be best for the extraction of flavonoids and antioxidant compounds respectively. HR showed high content of biochemical than the FGR.
