Alternaria helianthi the causal agent of sunflower leaf blight was isolated from a monoconidial culture derived from blight infected sunflower leaves of MSFH-8.Alternariahelianthi was first cultured on PDA and then transferred to Potato Dextrose broth. Toxin was purified from the cultural filtrate by treatment with organic solvents. The identity of the toxin was established by estimating carbohydrate and protein content. Based on the quantity of carbohydrate and protein the toxin was identified as glycoproteinaceous in nature. The toxin inhibited seed germination and affected root and shoot growth.

Keywords: Sunflower, Toxin, Alternaria helianthi, Leaf blight.
