The aim of this study was to determine prevalence of Leptospira interrogans serovar hardjo in the define area. To serve the purpose a total 398 serum samples were collected from different age group, breed and sex of cattle. Out of 398, some of cattle (101) showed history of abortion, mastitis/agalactia/oligolactia, repeat breeder and fever. These samples were screened by I-ELISA kit which detect antibody directed against L. hardjo. The distribution of serovar hardjo was significantly differed between different districts (Navsari, Tapi, Valsad, Surat) of South Gujarat. The highest seroprevalence of L. hardjo was found in Valsad district (21.56 %) followed by Surat (6.89 %), Tapi (3.30 %) and Navsari (3.04 %). However, there was statistically insignificant difference was observed in distribution of serovar hardjo between different breeds, age and sex of cattle.

Keywords: I-ELISA, Leptospirosis, L. hardjo, Seroprevalence, Weather data.
