Abstract:

Antimicrobial activity of radial growth of mycelium of Aspergillus niger, Alternaria brassicae and Pencillium notatum in five fruit pulps viz. Aonal (NA-6 and NA-7), Bael (NB-5 and NB-9), Ber (Karaka and Umran), Jackfruit (NJ-2 and NJ-3) and Kaitha (K-1 and K-2). However all the five fruit pulps at 40% concentration showed maximum inhibition compared to other tested concentrations. The present study indicated that Aonla fruits extract reduced the growth of Aspergillus niger, Alternaria brassicae and Pencillium notatum at (10, 20, 30 and 40%) concentrations as compared to control within 10 days after incubation. Antimicrobial activity of five edible pulp of minor fruit germplasms resulted that Aonla fruits extract was recorded highest antimicrobial activity as compared to other tested fruit extracts.
