Two fungicides and eight different plant derived oils were examined against 8 seed borne fungi namely, Aspergillus flavus, A. niger, A. terreus, A. oryzae, A. fumigatus, Fusarium moniliforme, F. solani and Penicillium sp.isolated from maize grains. Antifungal activity was tested on PDA medium using well diffusion method. The plant derived oil exhibited varying degrees of inhibition activity against the fungi. Oils of Nutmeg, Eucalyptus, Cinnamon and Clove showed maximum antifungal activity against all the eight fungal species. Oils of Neem, Sesame, Pongam and Negundo did not exhibit any antifungal activity. Mancozebinhibited mycelial growth of all the test fungi significantly. Bavistin also inhibited all the test fungi except F. solani and Penicillium sp.
