Assessment of antifungal potentials of some plant extracts against chickpea wilt
Chickpea enjoys a major share in the pulse cultivation across the globe because of its multifarious uses and its pivotal utility in human diet. Fusarium wilt caused by Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. Ciceri is amongst one of the major constraints limiting its yield. The present study addresses the efficacy of four plant extracts in controlling the growth Tamarindus of wilt pathogen. For the present study aqueous and alcoholic extracts of Callistemon lanceolatus, indicus, Terminalia Arjuna and Zizyphus jujuba were prepared at three different concentrations viz. 100, 200 and 500ppm concentrations. Alcoholic extracts of all the tested plants were superior as compared to their water counterparts at all concentrations. At 500ppm alcoholic extract of Callistemon lanceolatus was found to be the most effective among the tested plant varieties inhibiting the growth to (97.55%) followed by Zizyphus jujuba (70.62%), Tamarindus indicus (61.68%) and Terminalia arjuna (58.89%).
