Dr. A. M. Mishra*

ABSTRACT

Plants contain a lot of chemicals in the form of secondary metabolites which may be used as antifungal components. Today due to health awareness a lot of research works have been carried out to detect their antifungal behaviour and as a result it has been demonstrated that these chemicals can successfully control the growth and sporulation of devastating fungus. Taking this aspect in this research work the extract of Thevetia leaf has been tested on the growth pattern of Alternaria alternata a harmful fungus of lot of crops and has been detected that the extract of the said plants completely control the growth and sporulation of Alternaria. The same extract when is applied on the Fusarium a Wilt pathogen of Banana the result was just opposit and a vigorous growth system was found on the petriplate treated with this extract. However in control the growth was found to be normal. This research proves the dual behavior of the extract that the antifungal in case of Alternaria and growth promoter in case of Fusarium.
