ABSTRACT

................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Methanolic extracts of Launea pinnatifida and Argimone maxicana was observed at different concentrations ranging between 500, 1000, 1500, 2000, 2500 and 3000 µg/ml were tested for antifungal activity in vitro on Penicillium expansumAspergillus flavus and Botrytis cinerea isolated from naturally infected apple fruit. Both plants were collected from different places of Maharashtra and identified. Methanolic extracts of plants were assessed for antifungal susceptibility using dilution method. Known antifungal agents were used as positive control.  The water extracts used as control and it was observed that the methanolic extracts concentrations were more effective and showed antifungal activity against the test pathogens. The results reveled that Launea pinnatifida showed 99% mycelial growth inhibition at 3000µg/ml against Penicillium expansum and Aspergillus flavus whereas Argimone maxicana showed 100% mycelial growth inhibition at 3000µg/ml against Botrytis cinerea. Hence, the results of the present investigations indicate the plant extracts possess antifungal properties that can be exploited as an ideal treatment for future plant disease management to eliminate fungal spread.


Key words: Plant extracts, Launea pinnatifida, Argimone maxicana, Post-harvest, pathogens, Disease management.
