The antifungal activity against plant and Food mold rot were examined in vitro using poison food technique. The essential oil from cymbopogan exhibited control over all the plant and food mold rot tested. The bioactive compound in the oil and its minimum inhibitory concentration were determined using TLC bioautography.
