Screening of the antifungal activity of plant Mentha longifolia crude extracts against two fungi Alternaria citri and Fusarium moniliforme

Maisa Yazgi, Danyal Awad, Balsam Jreikous

This research focuses on the antifungal activity of different concentrations of ethanol, methanol and acetone crude extracts derived from plant Mentha longifolia against Fusarium moniliforme, and Alternaria citri. All extracts revealed obvious inhibitory activity against both fungi. But it varied based on plant part used as starting material, different concentrations of extracts and type of solvent. MIC of different extracts ranged from 0.002-0.04 g/ml. It was found that at 0.01 g/ml and at 0.002 g/ml of acetone extract of M. longifolia flowers, both fungi, Fusarium moniliforme, and Alternaria citri. Thus acetone extract of M. longifolia flowers was the most effective as compared to ethanol and methanolrnextracts of M. longifolia parts used as starting materials.
