Abstract:

Nine botanicals were evaluated for their antifungal activity against Fusarium solani causing root rot disease in Bael by employing poisoned food technique under laboratory conditions. The results indicated that all the botanicals inhibited the growth of the Fusarium solani as compared to control. Out of nine botanical tested, turmeric rhizome extract was found most effective as it showed minimum mycelial growth (33.3 mm, 20.7 mm and 13.5 mm) and maximum mycelial growth inhibition (63.1 %, 77.0 % and 85.1 %) followed by neem, onion, tulsi, aonla, aak, datura and jamun at 5, 10 and 20 per cent concentrations, respectively. Congress grass recorded as least effective botanical against the pathogen at all the three concentrations.
