ABSTRACT

 The phytochemical, and the eliciting potentials of high concentration of ginger (Zingiber officinale) extract in eocoyam plant was studied. The aqueous and acetone phytochemical screening revealed that the extract of ginger contained alkaloids, saponins and tannins at low level. The acetone extract contained phenols at high level, while the aqueous extract had a low level of phenols. • Flavonoids was detected at low level for the aqueous extract while the acetone extract showed flavonoids at a moderate level. The result for the phytochemical composition of cocoyam leaf treated with acetone extract of Zingiber officinale showed that at 1% ginger after spray, many secondary metabolites like phenols, alkaloids, flavonoids and anthocyanins were elicited compared to the tween 20 control before and after spray and the 1% ginger before spray respectively. An increase in the ginger concentration from 1% to 5% showed a significant (p<0.05) increase in the secondary metabolites elicited when compared to the control groups and l%ginger after spray. Based on these findings, it may be suggested that Zingiber officinale (ginger) has a high eliciting potential and can serve as a biological inhibitor of plants pest and diseases owing to its high phytochemical content.
