THE INHIBITORY EFFECT OF GARLIC HOMOGENATE AND AJOENE, A COMPOUND OF GARLIC, ON GROWTH OF STAGONOSPORA CURTISII (BERK.) SACC. IN VITRO

A. Saniewska
Garlic clove homogenate at concentration of 0.25% in PDA medium evidently inhibited the mycelium growth of Stagonospora curtisil. Higher concentrations of garlic homogenates (0.5 and 0.75%) added to the medium inhibited the growth of the pathogen in higher degree and a concentration of 1.0% showed fungicidal effect.

Ajoene, a constituent of garlic, in a concentration of 30 mg/l in the medium, greatly delayed S. curtisii growth in vitro. At a concentration of 40 and 60 mg/l of ajoene, the inhibition of the growth of the fungus was a little higher.
