Abstract

Effect of growth stages of Ranunculus sceleratus L. on its fungitoxicity.

Abstract

The fungicidal activity of extracts of R. sceleratus collected at different growth stages was investigated. Leaves harvested just before flowering were most fungitoxic to Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. lentis followed by plants harvested just after flowering, plants with 11-20 leaves and plants with 5-10 leaves.
