Effect of Some Selected Leaf Extracts on Fusarium oxysporum from Anaswara Variety (V.unguiculata (subsp. sesquipedalis L. Verd-court)

Authors(2) :-Meritty Jacob, Neeta N. Nair

This study was aimed to evaluate the efficacy of the leaf extracts at different concentrations on the seed borne pathogenic fungus from Anaswara variety of Vigna unguiculata (sub sp. sesquipedalis) L. Verdcourt. The Ethanolic leaf extracts of the selected plants with different concentrations were tested for its antifungal efficacy on the endophytic fungus Fusarium oxysporum in Potato dextrose agar (PDA) medium. Among the four leaf extracts, the leaf extracts of Murraya koenigii showed the maximum inhibition on the endophytic fungal pathogen.
