ABSTRACT

The study was conducted to check the effect of different plant extracts /allelochemicals and salicylic acid on the growth of Penicillium digitatum causes citrus green mould by using 7 plant extracts alone and in combination with wax and 3 concentrations of salicylic acid alone and in combination with wax. The study revealed that in case of plant extracts maximum growth inhibition (35.90 %) was shown by Anar followed by Chabir (33.60%) and Garlic (29.16%), while minimum growth inhibition was recorded from Parthanium (17.43%) and Ginger (19.94 %). In case of plant extracts + wax maximum growth inhibition (44.36%) was shown by Anar+Wax followed by Chabir+Wax (42.78%) and Fungicide + Wax (37.45%), while minimum growth inhibition % was recorded from Fungicide (15.49 %) and Kortuma + Wax (17.48%). In case of salicylic acid concentrations maximum growth inhibition (34.73 %) was shown by Salicylic acid concentration of 6 mm followed by Salicylic acid (33.40 %) at 3 mm concentration and Salicylic acid (28.51%) at 9 mm concentration, while minimum growth inhibition % was recorded from SA + Wax (-13.37%). So it was concluded that allelochemicals + wax showed maximum growth inhibition of green mould.
