Among nine plant part extracts tested in vitro against growth and sporulation of Pyricularia grisea at a concentration of  500, 1000 and 1500 ppm minimum mycelial growth and maximum per cent zone inhibition  as well as less  sporulation was recorded in garlic (Allium sativum) bulb and onion (Allium cepa) bulb extracts. Among different plant extracts used as foliar spray, garlic bulb extract was found most effective showing significantly less leaf blast severity as well as less neck and finger blast incidence as compared to other extracts including control. The grain yield and cost benefit ratio were also significantly higher in garlic (Allium sativum) bulb extract.
