Aqueous extract of 13 plants were evaluated for their antifungal activity against Colletotrichum capsici. All extracts showed antifungal activity at varying degree from 50.00 to 77.33 percent. Among them, Tridax procumbens (77.33%) exhibited highest percent inhibition of mycelial growth of C. capsici, followed by Hyptis sauveolens (71.00 %). All extracts showed more inhibition of mycelial growth as compared to fungicide Dithane M-45.
