While screening different parts of 9 plant species for their volatile toxicity at 1000ppm concentration against storage fungi viz., Aspergillus flavus. Altemaria alternate and Pencillium variable. The active volatile constituents from each plant were isolated in the form of essential oil and the fungitoxicity of each oil was tested separately. The oil of Mentha spicata var. MSS-5 exhibited strong toxicity inhibiting the fungal mycelial growth completely. While others were showed either moderate or poor inhibitory antifungal activity.
