Fusarium which is the large filamentous fungi group widely found in plants and soil have been not studied much on biological activities. In the study, Fusarium isolated from Hisbicus was used to exploit the biological activities. The antimicrobial activities of Fusarium cultured in modified ISP 4 was against eight different kinds of pathogens including in Candida albicans (23.50±0.56 mm), Salmonella typhi (17.47±0.50 mm), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (16.67±0.58 mm), Staphylococcus sciuri (14.43±0.55 mm), Serratia marcescens (19.23±0.75 mm), Micrococcus luteus (26.67±0.58 mm), Staphylococcus aureus (13.57±0.51 mm) and Vibrio harveyi (15.47±0.50 mm) by using the agar diffusion method. Otherwise, Fusarium sp. did not show activity when cultured in ISP 4 even though it could grow very well in this medium. The chloroform and petroleum ether extracts from Fusarium culture were used to test antimicrobial activities. There were at least two antimicrobial compounds produced by Fusarium in modified ISP 4. This study firstly reported Fusarium isolated from Hisbicus rosa-sinensis could produce antimicrobial agents.
