Abstract With increasing interest in natural products of plant origin for medicinal and health care benefits there is added emphasis on the quality of the source raw material. In most cases the vegetative tissues and organs are the source of the required raw material. However, such tissues/organs may become infested/susceptible to many diseases causing deterioration of the quality of the desired economic product and loss of genetic resources. Considerable progress has been made with respect to… Expand

Biocide plants as a sustainable tool for the control of pests and pathogens in vegetable cropping systems
Groups of plant secondary metabolites most promising for the development of pesticidal formulations are glucosinolates, saponins, and more generally terpenoid phytoconstituents, such as essential oil and their constituents. Expand
Diseases in Mint: Causal Organisms, Distribution, and Control Measures
This review on mint diseases indicates that considerable progress has been achieved with respect to the identity of the causal organisms, and chemical control measures, but not much work has been dedicated for developing resistant crop varieties against the diseases. Expand
Fungal foliar diseases in Withania somnifera and its effect on secondary metabolites
The results of the study indicated that Alternaria alternata caused severe leaf spot disease, while Myrothecium roridum and Fusarium oxysporum caused minor diseases, which were dominant seedborne pathogens that are transmitted to seedlings. Expand
Studies on leaf spot disease of Withania somnifera and its impact on secondary metabolites
During an investigation of the disease profile of Withania somnifera, it was observed that leaf spot is the most prevalent disease and the association of fungal pathogen identified as Alternaria alternata (Fr.) Keissler was shown. Expand
Mutualistic endophytic fungi and in-planta suppressiveness to plant parasitic nematodes
This review of the development of the concept of using nonpathogenic fungi that colonize the endorhiza for biological control of plant parasitic nematodes hopes that it will be useful to those working or planning to work with mutualistic fungal endophytes for biological enhancement of plants for nematode management.

Fungal foliar diseases of Rauwolfia serpentina in wild, its seasonal occurrence, seed transmission and disease management
Results of the present study indicated that Cercospora rauwolfiae is major leaf spot disease causing pathogen and suggested that R. serpentina is affected in wild by C. rau wolfiae and A. alternata. Expand
Post‐infectional dynamics of leaf spot disease in Withania somnifera
This study highlights a few potential targets for enhancing the disease resistance against the leaf spot pathogen of W. somnifera by exploring the site of pathogen invasion into the host tissue. Expand
