Abstract

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the antifungal activity of aqueous extract and essential oil of Artemisia herba-alba on some specific storage fungi. This plant has been selected on the basis of its ethnobotanical uses. Different concentration of aqueous extract (20, 25 and 30%) and essential oil (0.15, 0.175, 0.200 and 0.250%) were evaluated in vitro for their antifungal activity against Fusarium spp and Alternaria spp. The concentration of 30% of extracts inhibits the growth of Alternaria while 0,025 % of essential oil recorded a good antifungal activity.  On the other hand, the aqueous extracts showed better efficacy than essential oil on Fusarium spp and Alternaria spp. Therefore the Artemisia herba-alba aqueous extract and its richness of secondary metabolites (flavonoids, alkaloids, tannins, saponins and steroids )  could be considered as a potential source of treatment of plant diseases, this study presents the different results obtained.
