ABSTRACT

Yam (Cioscorea spp) is the second most important crop of hot humid countries. Some examples of the species are D. batatas, D. alata, D. esculenta, etc. Nigeria is one of the largest producers of yarn. Yarn serves as food for humans and vegetable burrowers. They are also medicinal. Industrially, yams can be processed into chips, flour and biscuits. Yams harvested are seldom used up till the next planting season. This creates the problem of storage to avoid losses due to pest and pathogen attacks. Some methods employed against these losses include the use of cold storage, use of pesticides etc. These methods employed are seldom effective, in the case of cold storage, the cost of maintenance is high. The use of pesticides has been found to be detrimental to the final consumers of the food. Initial work done using plant parts showed fungitoxic effects on these patl1ogens. This work carried out showed antifungal effects of the leaves of Azadirachta indica and chrornoiaena odorata on B. theobromae, a causal organism of tuber rot in storage. The work was carried out in vitro and ex vitro. Cold water extracts were used in different concentrations (100%, 50%, and 25%). The extract with the highest concentration (100%) gave the best results.
