Enyiazu Franca Adanne


The study investigated the control Of Yam rot using Chromoleana odourata and Moringa Oleiferia. Spolt yam was inoculated into a prepared culture media after which the growth of the fungi observed were isolated and subculture to get a pure culture. The pure culture was then treated with the extract from Chromoleana Odourata and Moringa Oleiferia. From the treatment given to the isolated fungi (fusarium specie and Aspergillus specie etc.) it was observed that the extract had a significant effect on the growth of the rot fungi. It was based on this that the study recommended that farmers should use bio-fungicide from C.odorata and M.oliefera in the control of  yam rot fungi.
