Abstract:

Bipolaris sorokiniana (Sacc.) Shoem. is a serious pathogen of wheat and causes root rot disease. The present study was carried out to determine inhibitory activity of 40 extracts from 37 plants belonging to 34 genera and 19 families against B. sorokiniana by Poisoned food technique. All extracts exhibited marked antifungal activity in terms of inhibition of mycelial growth of fungus. The percentage inhibition of fungus caused by extracts ranged between 54 to 91%. Extract of 8 plants viz., Curcuma aromatica, Atylosia lineata, Butea superba, Striga gesnerioides, Calceolaria mexicana, Adhatoda vasica, Conyza stricta and Smithia sensitiva exhibited highest inhibitory activity (>90% inhibition). Least antifungal effect was displayed by extract of Emilia sanchifolia (54% inhibition). These extracts appear promising antifungal agents. Further investigations in field conditions are to be carried out.
