Abstract

Aqueous extracts of 39 plants selected from local flora were evaluated for antifungal potential against Alternaria solani, causing early blight of tomato, at 4% concentration in Potato Dextrose Agar by poison food technique. Out of these, 13 plant extracts significantly reduced the mycelial growth of the pathogen, according to ANOVA, Tukey's post-test. Inhibition rate of above 20% was shown by seven plant extracts namely Crotalaria trichotoma (36.6%), Citrus aurantifolia (27.3%), Azadirachta indica (23.7%), Polyalthia longifolia (23.3%), Datura metel (21.3%), Muntingia calabura (20.09%) and Oxalis latifolia (20.09%). At 2% concentration, six extracts showed significant growth inhibition namely, C. trichotoma (16.6%), A. indica (10%), Capsicum annum (7.1%), D. metel (6.6%), P. longifolia (6.3%) and C. aurantifolia (5.5%). The plant extracts shortlisted for pathogen inhibition have potential to be developed as potent fungicides in organic farming.
