Abstract :

Introduction: The present study was carried out to evaluate antifungal activity of methanolic extract from Emblica officinalis leaves against three phytopathogens viz., Alternaria alternate, Bipolaris specifera and Curvuleria lunata. Materials and Methods: Inhibitory potential of methanolic extract was analyzed by poisoned food technique in which different concentrations of test material were prepared in sterilized potato dextrose agar. Results: Results of the present study revealed that Embilica officinalis has potential activity against the three test pathogens with IC value of 0.91±0.01 mg/mL, 1±0.015 mg/mL and 1.1±0.0152 mg/mL against Bipolaris specifera, Alternaria alternata and Curvuleria lunata respectively. Conclusion: Amla has some potential antifungal activity for the prevention and treatment of fungal infections.
