Abstract

Antifungal activity of aqueous and ethanol extracts of Agaricus bisporus were determined in vitro against Aspergillus flavus following poison food technique using different concentration (5,10,15,20,25,30 mg/ml) for aqueous extract and (2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 16 mg/ml) for ethanol extract. the maximum effect of ethanolic extract against Aspergillus flavus growth was achieved at concentration 10 mg/ml, the growth rate reach 1.25 cm while the maximum effect of ethanolic extract achieved at concentration 16 mg/ml, the growth rate reaches 2.5 cm.
