Five plant extracts viz, Azadirachta indica, Capsicum annum, Allium sativum (bulbs), Eucalyptus globulus, Mentha arvensis and mixture of all plant extract each of them at two concentration 15% and 25% were evaluated against Alternaria carthmi. Mixture of all plant extracts and garlic (bulbs) extracts were found highly effective against pathogen at both 15% and 25% concentration and mycelial inhibition was recorded 62.16% at 25% concentration. Another two plant extracts Neem and chilli was also found to be effective against pathogen and both showed 52.15% inhibition at 25% concentration. There are different plant extracts are available in nature. However, some plant extracts are highly effective and some plant extracts are not effective against pathogen.
