Wild Honey Inhibits Growth od Some Phytopathogenic Fungi in vitro

K.I. Al-Mughrabi


Wild honey was diluted to 1000 ppm with sterile distilled water and tested in vitro for inhibition of the
plant pathogenic fungi Fusarium oxysporum, Rhizoctonia solani, Alternaria solani, Stemphylium solani, Colletotrichum
sp., and Phytophthora infestans. Wild honey was effective against all these fungi, particularly A. solani and P. infestans,
the causal agents of early and late blight diseases respectively; also against R. solani and F. oxysporum, and to a less
extent against S. solani and Colletotrichum sp. This is the first report on the inhibiting effect of wild honey against
plant pathogenic fungi.
