Studies on the Antimicrobial Potency of Five Crude Plant Extracts and Chemical Fungicide in in vitro Control of Aspergillus flavus, Causal Agent of White Yam (Dioscorea rotundata) Tuber Rot

Studies on the antimicrobial potency was carried out on five crude plant extracts (Piper nigrum, Zingiber officinale, Azadirachta indica, Carica papya and Nicotiana tabacum) and a chemical fungicide (mancozeb) using three concentrations of hot aqueous plant extracts (30, 60 and 90 g/l) and mancozeb (4, 8 and 12 g/l). The extracts and chemical were separately amended in potato dextrose agar (PDA) in in vitro control of Aspergillus flavus; causal agent of yam tuber rot. Rotten white yam...

Mango

Mangoes are grown in tropical and subtropical regions with india leading world production. The fruit is a good source of fibers and vitamins (Tedjo et al, 2002) and is described as the most favourite and valuable fruit in world market (olli et al., 1996). Besides, the fruit is rich in antioxidants and therefore reduces the risk of cardiac disease, anti-cancer and anti-viral activities (Schieber et al., 2003, Barreto et al., 2008, Daud et al. 201...
