Abstract: Extracts from five West African plants were evaluated in vitro for fungitoxicity against Ustilago maydis, Ustilaginoidea virens, Curvularia lunata and Rhizopus sp. Steam distillate from leaves of Cymbopogon citratus completely mhtbited thL growth of all fou r fungi, and hot water extracts from fresh leaves ol Ocimum gratissimum and Chromoleana odorata, and dry fruits of Xylopw aethiopica, reduced radial growth by 10-60o/o. A hot water extract from dry fruits of Monodera myrstica was ineffective as a fungitoxicant.
