Petroleum ether extract of seeds of Psoralea corylifolia was recorded a maximum antifungal activity in Aspergillus flavus oryzae (93.5%) and A. tamarii (92.43%); Benzene extract recorded a maximum inhibition in A. niger (88.10%), A. flavus oryzae (83.80%) and A. tamarii (81.10%). In chloroform extract A. tamarii recorded 74.60% and A. niger showed 74.16% inhibition. In methanol extract A. tamarii and A. flavus oryzae recorded 69.50% and in ethanol extract A. flavus oryzae showed 74.63% and A… Expand
