Abstract: The in vitro aqueous and methanol leaves extract of Ocimum sanctum L. plant at different concentrations from 10 to 40% each was tested by following poisoned food technique. The different concentrations of leaves extract used were as 0.0 (control), 10, 20, 30 and 40%. The Ocimum sanctum L. aqueous leaves extract at 40% and methanolic leaves extractat 30% concentration was found to be most effective in reducing the mycelial growth of the Fusarium solani. Similarly the methanolic leaves extract at 30% and 40% concentration was found to be most effective in reducing the mycelial growth of the pathogen.
