Macrophomina phaseolina (Tassi goid) is a pathogen that causes Charcoal rot of mungbean resulting in to a great economic loss. In the present study effect of Ocimum sanctum L., Calotropis procera (Ait.) Ait. f. and Astragalous tribuloides Delile extract on the survival of Macrophomina phaseolina was studied. The variety of different extracts of Ocimum sanctum L., Calotropis procera (Ait.) Ait.f and Astragalous tribuloides Delile brings various biochemical changes under suitable condition. The alkaline extract of Ocimum sanctum L., shows the maximum growth of Macrophomina phaseolina, Acidic extract of Calotropis procera (Ait.) Ait. f. and alcoholic extract of Astragalous tribuloides Delile show maximum growth of Macrophomina phaseolina. It showed that Macrophomina phaseolina was less reactive in these extract. On the other hand, aqueous acidic extract of Ocimum sanctum L., alkaline extract of Calotropis procera (Ait) Ait. f. and acidic extract of Astragalous tribuloides Delile showed minimum growth of Macrophomina Phaseolina. It indicated that Macrophomina phaseolina was more reactive in these plant extract.
