Abstract
Antifungal activity of the bioactive compound 2H-Fu ro[2,3-H]-1-benzopyran-2-one isolated from seeds of Psoralea corylifolia L. recorded complete inhibition of Drechslera halodes and Trichoderma viride at 800ppm concentration.


Cladosporium cladosporoides recorded 98.0% inhibition at 1000ppm , Curvularia lunata recorded 71.0% inhibition at 800ppm and Alternaria alternata recorded 90.0% inhibition at 900ppm concentration r espectively. The Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) of all the tes t fungi was identified and all the results obtained were compared to synthetic fungicide Dithane M45 and Bavi stin.
