Abstract: Inhibition of spore/conidial germination of four fungi viz., Bipolaris sorokiniana, Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. vasinfectum, Rhizopus artocarpi and Botryodiplodia theobromae was tested using the extracts of different parts of Vinca rosea and Azadirachta indica and smoke of rice straw, wheat straw, tobacco leaf and "dhup" (incense) and showed good results in their inhibition. Vinca rosea root extract inhibited 100% spore germination of Bipolaris sorokiniana and Rhizopus artocarpi when it was immersed from 5-30 minutes at 5:1.25 (w/v) concentration. A. indica (leaf, root and seed) extracts showed good (100%) inhibition results on B. sorokiniana, and R. artocarpi. Smoke of rice straw, wheat straw, tobacco leaf and ?dhup? had a great antifungal effect against these fungi.
