Abstract:

Herbal fungicides are mostly used to control plant disease because of their eco-friendly nature and cost effectiveness. The present investigation focuses on the antifungal activity of some weed extracts viz., Salix sp., Achyranthus aspera, Solanum nigrum, Parthenium hysterophorus, Datura fastusa, Melilotis alba, Lantana camara, and Achyranthus aspera,. Out of 8 weed tested, the extracts of Datura, Parthenium, Achyranthus, Salix sp. and Physallis minima were found most effective against phytopathogenic fungi, Alternaria solani. The antifungal activity of these plant extract was determined in vitro following Poison Food Technique. The results are showed that maximum inhibition was obtained by Datura extract (80.78 reduction) followed by Parthenium (76.48), Achyranthus (69.66), Salix sp. (65.14) and Physallis minima (49.53). The other treatments were also significantly controlled the mycelium growth of Alternaria solani.
