Toxic effect of some plant extracts on Phytophthora capsici, the foot rot pathogen of black pepper



Toxic effect of some plant extracts on Phytophthora capsici, the foot rot pathogen of black pepper



Indian Phytopathology 49(2): 181-184



Aqueous leaf extracts from Azadirachta indica, Chromolaena odorata, Lantana camara, Piper colubrinum and Strychnos nux-vomica were tested against vegetative and reproductive phases of P. capsici. P. colubrinum was resistant to P. capsici. Mycelial growth, sporangial production, zoospore production and release, and zoospore germination were completely inhibited by C. odorata extracts at 2% concn. Similar results occurred with A. indica extracts although mycelial growth was inhibited by 75.5%.
