The seeds of legumes are associated with three dominant fungi fusarium oxysporum, Alternaria alternata and Dreschsleria longirostrata. The leaf extract of Acacia nilotica is most effective show more fungitoxic property. As concentration of leaf extract increases a linear growth of dominant fungi decreases, the leaf extract also reduces percentage of seed mycoflora and increases seed germination percentage.
