The present investigation on was undertaken in the Department of Plant Pathology, B.A. College of Agriculture, A.A.U., Anand. The Penicillium funiculosum rot of aonla was found a new record in Gujarat and it was identified by Division of Mycology and Plant Pathology, Indian Agricultural Research Institute, New Delhi (ITCC No.: 7046.08). Bio-efficacy of nine phytoextracts at 10% were tested against the mycelial growth and sporulation of Penicillium funiculosum in vitro, among them significantly lowest mycelial growth of P. funiculosum was recorded in neem leaf extract (7.75 mm) showing 89.49% growth inhibition. Further it was also proved most effective in reducing the Penicillium rot severity both in pre- (20.44%) and post-inoculation (20.87%) treatments at 7 day after inoculation, respectively. The next best treatment in tested phytoextracts tulsi and garlic were found both in in vitro and in vivo condition.
