Abstract

EFFECT OF ANTIFUNGAL ACTIVITY OF SOME MEDICINAL PLANTS AGAINST PATHOGENIC FUNGI

V. S. Patil* and S. N. Dakhore

ABSTRACT

Medicinal plants are used as a source of medicine for treatment of various diseases. These plants produce secondary metabolites that have antifungal properties. These fungal pathogens not only affect plants but also causes various diseases to human as well as other animals. These plants can provide another best alternative for producing chemical fungicidies that are relatively non-toxic and cost effective. Leaf extracts of Azadirachtaindica, Ocimum sanctum, Adhatodavasica, Polyalthialongifolia, Tinosporacordifolia were investigated for activity against selected pathogenic fungi such as Mucor, Rhizopus, Aspergillus, Fusarium by agar well diffusion method. Out of these four fungi the Rhizopus, Mucor and Fusarium had significant sensitivity to the plant extract than of Aspergillus and were capable for reducing growth of fungi responsible for various alternations. In particular extract it offers effective bioactive compound for growth inhibition of that fungi.
