Biochemical analysis of plant extract treated seedlings showed that there was increase in the level of total soluble protein and total phenols content as compared to healthy and diseased plant. The mortality % of tomato seedlings was also reduced in all plant extract treated seedling. The minimum mortality per cent with 5.62 was found in garlic extract treated plant against 80.92% in case of control 2.
