Abstract:
Aqueous extracts of 5 plants selected from local flora were evaluated for antifungal potential against Alternaria solani by Poisoned Food Technique at 10% concentrations. In the experiment of In vitro efficacy of plant extracts against Alternaria solani by crude extraction method, the maximum inhibition was obtained by Azadirachta indica (60.49%), Zingiber officinale (54.73%) and Ocimum sanctum (53.09%) @10% concentration over all other plant extracts. In the experiment of In vitro efficacy of plant extracts against Alternaria solani by acetone extraction method, the maximum exhibition was obtained by Azadirachta indica (64.24%), Ocimum sanctum (58.62%) and Zingiber officinale (57.32%)@10% concentration over all other plant extracts. Out of these two methods, there was slight increase in inhibiting the mycelial growth of the pathogen Alternaria solani in acetone extract as compared to crude extract and therefore acetone extract is better than crude extract.
