Antifungal Activity of Allelopathic Plant Extracts I. Effect of Aqueous Extract of Three Allelopathic Asteraceous Species on Growth of Aspergillii

Rukhsana Bajwa , Naureen Akhtar and Arshad Javaid

Abstract:
Effect of aqueous root and shoot extract of three allelopathic plants of family Asteraceae viz., Helianthus annuus L., Ageratum conyzoides L. and Cirsium arvense (L.) Scop., on growth of three pathogenic fungi namely Aspergillus niger Van Tieghem, A. fumigatus Fresenius and A. nidulans Eidam was studied in Hagem`s liquid nutrient medium. Root extract of H. annuus suppressed the growth of A. niger and A. fumigatus very effectively, A. conyzoides reduced the growth of A. fumigatus to a certain extent while the aqueous extracts of C. arvense induced lowest toxicity against the fungal species. A. nidulans exhibited complete resistance against all allelopathic extracts tested.
