The groundnut value chain in world employs a significant number of people, thereby contributing substantially to the economy. This groundnut cultivation has a direct positive impact on uplift of nutritional and economic status of smallholder farmers. The groundnut is cultivated in more than 100 countries under different agro-climatic conditions. Plants of groundnuts are highly susceptible to fungal contamination, including toxin producing fungi. However, toxicogenic fungal species are important constraints to the production the crop, affecting the quality of the seeds during storage. Antifungal activity of different per cent concentrations (5, 10, 25 and 50) of cow/goat urine against mycotoxin producing fungi i.e., Aspergillus flavus, A. nigerand P. chrysogenum were recorded through poisoned food technique. The maximum mycelium growth inhibition of three tested fungi were showed in goat urine based on fresh and dry weight of mycelium due to the goat eat lots of medicinal plants. Components of medicinal plants in goat urine showed antimicrobial properties i.e. inhibits the mycelial growth of fungus.

Keywords: Groundnut, Cow and Goat urine, Aspergillus flavus, A. niger, and P. chrysogenum
