Fumonisins are mycotoxins primarily produced by Fusarium verticillioides that grow on food and feed-stuffs. In the present investigation, the antifumonisin activity of 2-hydroxy-4-methoxybenzaldehyde isolated from Decalepis hamiltonii was evaluated. The results demonstrated that the compound 2-hydroxy-4-methoxybenzaldehyde exhibited dose-dependent antifungal activity with the zone of inhibition, minimum inhibitory concentration and minimum fungicidal concentration values 14.8 mm (at 500 mu g/disc), 100 and 500 mu g/mL, respectively. The fumonisin B-1 production was completely inhibited at 400 mg/L under in vitro and 750 mg/kg under in vivo. There were no adverse effects observed in treated seed samples. The present findings indicate the possible use of 2-hydroxy-4-methoxybenzaldehyde as an alternative agent for management of fusarial growth and mycotoxins contamination.
