Abstract Leaf extract of Agave americana was evaluated for antifungal activity against Alternaria brassicae, the causal agent of Alternaria blight of Indian mustard [Brassica juncea (L.) Czern. & Coss]. Methanolic leaf extract (crude extract) of A. americana showed antifungal activity against A. brassicae. The green mass obtained by vacuum drying of the crude extract was used for further sequential fractionation using ethyl acetate, n-butanol and methanol. Among the three fractions, the… CONTINUE READING
