Antifungal Activity from Water Extracts of Some Common Weeds

M.C.M. Iqbal, S. Meiyalaghan , K.B. Wijesekara and K.P. Abeyratne

Abstract:
The water extracts from the weed species (Ageratum conyzoides, Oxalis corniculata, Phyllanthus debilis, Vernonia cinerea and Desmodium trifolium) were assayed for their antifungal activity against some plant pathogenic fungi. The extract from Ageratum conyzoides inhibited the mycelial growth of Rhizoctonia solani, Aspergillus niger and Phomopsis theae. The extract from Oxalis corniculata was active against A. niger while, Phyllanthus debilis suppressed the growth of P. theae. The activity generally declined after three days of incubation, while A. conyzoides remained active nine days after incubation.
