Aqueous extracts from twenty plants were tested for their antifungal activity against Fusarium moniliforme inciting foot rot of paddy. Test results showed a differential activity of the plant extracts against the mycelium growth. The maximum inhibitory effect (60.23%)was shown by stem extracts of Acacia arabicae against the mycelium growth of test fungi followed by leaf extracts of Datura stramonium (56.00%) and Dedonia viscosa (52.67%) effect against the test fungi. The seed extracts of Aegle marmelos, root extracts of Ficus glomarata, seed extracts of Euclyptus globolus and seed extracts of Anthocephalus cadamba showed appreciable good inhibitory effect.
