Abstract:

This study was conducted to evaluate the effect of crude and different solvent extract of Leaf of Lantana camara, an aggressive invasive weed against plant pathogenic fungi Colletorichum falcatum causing Red rot of sugarcane disease under in vitro conditions. Aqueous crude extract and solvent extracts such as extracts Methanol, Ethyl acetate, Chloroform were tested at 2mg/mL, 4mg/mL and 8mg/mL concentrations. Results revealed that all the 3 solvent extracts showed significant inhibition at higher concentrations when compared to the Standard Fluconazole (15μg/ml). It was concluded that the selected crude and solvent extract of Leaf of Lantana camara possesses antifungal activity against pathogenic Colletotrichum falcatum and can be exploited as natural fungi toxicant to control Red rot disease and thus reduce the dependence of synthetic fungicide upto some extent.
