In the present study eight plant extracts were tried on Groundnut mosaic virus, known to damage groundnut plants, thus leading to severe financial loss to farmers. Out of eight extracts tested in the present study, only four extracts behaved as potent virus inhibitors (49-63%). Of the remaining four, three showed 22-31% inhibition of the virus and one showed phytotoxic effect on the indicator host.
