The aim of this study was to investigate allopathic effects of botanical extracts from Armeniaca sibirica?vulgaris and Platycladus orientalis leaves on Cladosporium cucumerinum and cucumber. Extracts from A. sibirica?vulgaris and P. orientalis were adopted and the major cucumber cultivar named Jinlv 3 was taken as the material to study the effect of prevention on C. cucumerinum through pot experiment. There are inhibitory effects of extracts from A. sibirica?vulgaris and P. orientalis leaves on C. cucumerinum to some extent. There is a significant effect of extract from 0.5 kg/L A. sibirica?vulgaris with inhibitory effect of 22.83%. After disoperation of C. cucumerinum pathogen on cucumber plant, extracts from both A. sibirica?vulgaris and P. orientalis leaves can effectively decrease MDA content in cucumber leaves. Extract from A. sibirica?vulgaris leaves can significantly increase protein content in cucumber plant. Moreover, there is an increase of antioxidant enzyme POD and SOD in cucumber plant and disease resistance of C. cucumerinum after using extracts from A. sibirica?vulgaris and P. orientalis leaves.
