Effect of essential plant oils on storage fungi, germination and emergence of cowpea seeds

Effect of essential plant oils on storage fungi, germination and emergence of cowpea seeds

Seed Science and Technology 30(3): 609-619

The antifungal activity of plant essential oils on storage fungi commonly associated with cowpea (Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp) seed was investigated. The antifungal activity of the essential oils of thyme, clove, peppermint, soyabean and peanut were tested against Aspergillus flavus, A. niger, Fusarium oxysporum, F. equiseti and Penicillium chrysogenum in vitro.
