Different extracts and oils from 13 plant materials were tested in vitro for antifungal activity against Trichophyton verrucosum, Trichophyton mentagrophytes and Trichophyton simii by cup plate method. Eight extracts/oils from 6 plants showing zone of inhibition more than 10 mm in radius against T. mentagrophytes and T. simil in the preliminary screening were further tested to determine the MIC against T. mentagrophytes. Ether and chloroform extracts of seeds of Mucuna pruriens and stem of Curcume longa were found to be fungistatic. Ether extract of the resin of Shores robusta, chloroform extract of Moringa pterlgosperma and oils of Azadirachts Indica and Pongamia gbbrs were found to be fungicidal.
