Clusterbean [Cyamopsis tetragonaloba (L.) Taub], an important legume crop in India. Alternaria spp. is an economically important pathogen widely distributed throughout the world and cause devastating disease on field crops. A total of eight commonly available botanicals were evaluated in the form of crude extracts against the growth of Alternaria cyamopsidis under in-vitro condition. Results of the in vitro evaluation of various botanicals against A. cyamopsidis revealed that all the test botanicals significantly inhibited mycelial growth of A. cyamopsidis, over untreated control. Azadirachta indica and Eucalyptus were found most effective followed by Allium cepa, Zingiber officinalis, Parthenium and Datura. While, Lantana camara was found least effective against mycelial growth of Alternaria cyamopsidis. Azadirachta indica and Eucalyptus were significantly superior over all other treatments.
