Sida acuta is a shrub indigenous to pantropical regions. Sida acuta belongs to the mallow family, Malvaceae. The plant is widely used for its various pharmacological properties. Therefore, in the current study antifungal activity for leaf, stem and root extracts of Sida acuta were carried out. Ethanol (50%) was used successively for extraction of active principles from the dried powdered leaves, stem and root. The antifungal screening was done with two plant pathogens viz. Claviceps purpurea MTCC 2334 and Macrophemina phaseolina MTCC 10576 as test microorganisms. In the agar-well diffusion assay, highest zone of inhibition in diameters were recorded with leaf ethanol extracts of S. acuta. Among the plant extracts, leaf has shown better inhibitory activity against the test organisms followed by stem and root. Both microorganisms were markedly affected by all the three extracts under study. Findings of this study, therefore, showed that all parts of S. acuta, particularly the leaf, possessed antifungal property, and hence which can be used in development of fungicide.
