Abstract

The aim of this study was to assess fungicidal potential of homeopathic globules namely Thuja occidentalis and Arnica montana (30C) on plant growth and root infecting fungi particularly Rhizoctonia solani, Fusarium spp. and Macrophomina phaseolina. Both in vitro and in vivo experiments had found positive results in the suppression of root rot fungi. Investigation on present study showed that A. montana and T. occidentalis globules (100, 75 and 50% v/w concentrations) reduced disease intensity caused by root rot pathogens and improved growth of test plants, but it produces negative effects on leguminous test crops in which nodules were failing to produce.
