Crude extracts of nine local medicinal and essential oil plants namely Allium cepa,Allium sativum,Citrus limonia , melia azedarach,Brassica alba, aloe tourm,Mentha viridis ,Nigella sativa,Ricinus communis and one fungicide (Rizolex-T) were found to have antifungal activity against two plants pathogen fungi namely,Marsonia secalis and Fusarium solani . Linear growth diameter,number of spores as well as percentage of growth reduction were calculated. Extracts of the mentioned plants greatly affected the linear growthand sporulation of the two fungi which were maximalbythe use of Rizolex fungicide, Allium sativum and Brassica alba,respectively against the growth of Marsonia secalis and by Rizolex, Allium cepa and melia azedarach,respectively, against the growth of Fusarium solani .
