Abstract:

The antifungal activities of methanol extracts from different plant parts of G. superba viz., rind, rhizomes, leaves flower and seeds were evaluated by in vitro. In different extracts tested, seed extract (82.45%) was found to possess the highest mycelial inhibitory activity at 100 per cent concentration when compared to the others followed by rind (82.33%), rhizome (82.06%), leaves (77.45%) and flower (76.39%) extract was also inhibit the mycelial growth of F. oxysporum. At 25 per cent concentration flower extract was showed highest mycelial growth reduction followed by seed, rind, leaves and rhizomes. The results obtained in the present study indicate that seed and rhizome extracts are the greatest potential source as inhibit the mycelial growth for F. oxysporum.


Keywords: Antifungal, Mycelial growth, F. oxysporum, Inhibition, Gloriosa superba.
