  • Abstract

    The antifungal activity of forty nine medicinal plants belonging to different families was tested in vitro on phytopathogenic fungus Colletotrichum graminicola. In which methanolic extracts of forty two plants exhibited varying degrees of inhibition activity against C. graminicola. The results revealed that extract of Terminalia chebula was highly effective in inhibiting the mycelial growth of C. graminicola at 75μg/50μL. The following six plants Acalypha indica, Eichhornia crassipes, Gyanandropsis gyanandra, Suaeda maritime, Tephrosia pumila and Tinospora cordifolia did not exhibit antifungal activity.
