Abstract:
Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. udum is one of the most devastating soil-borne diseases causing wilt of Pigeonpea. The aim of present investigation was to evaluate the antifungal activities of phyto-extracts which can be used to control wilt disease of pigeonpea. Results revealed that all the 12 botanicals tested (each @ 10 and 20%) exhibited a wide range of radial mycelial growth of F. udum and it was decreased considerably with increase in concentration of the test botanicals from 10 to 20 per cent.The phyto-extracts / botanicals viz. Allium cepa, Lantana camara, Osmium sanctum, Gliricidia sepium, Azadirachta indica, Allium sativum, Bougainveilliea spectabilis, Moringa oleifera, Eucalyptus globulus, Pongamia pinnata, Vinca rosea and Asparagus racemosus ware evaluated in vitro for their antifungal activities against wilt of pigenopea, F. udum using poison food technique. Average mycelial growth inhibition recorded in the test botanicals was ranged from 28.89 (Bouganveillia spectabilis) to 77.23 per cent (Azardirachta indica). However it was significantly highest in Azardirachta indica (77.23%) followed by Allium sativum (76.11%), Oscimum sanctum (64.08%), Allium cepa (59.26%), Eucalyptus globulus (60.19%), Lantana camara (57.41%), Pongamia pinnata (56.30%), Vinca rosea (53.71%), Asparagus racemosus (40.00%), Glyceridia maculate (39.63%), Moringa oleifera (36.48%) and Bouganveillia spectabilis (28.89%).
