Abstract:


Currently, numerous researchers have focused their attention on the use of natural products from plants and microorganisms, or compounds derived from these organisms to protect crops from various diseases, thus reduce the negative effects on human health and environmental safety. Fungal diseases cause a considerable loss of crop yields in agricultural industries worldwide. Fusarium oxysporum comprises a multitude of formae speciales that cause vascular wilt diseases of economically important crops. This review presents an overview of researches realized on natural products tested against Fusarium oxysporum formae speciales phytopathogens for the period (2017-2020). This review aims to collect major research works of the antifungal compounds against these fungi and up-dates information on their developments and approaches that have been rapidly taking place in recent years so that further novel researches can be envisaged. Discussion of these studies by analyzing different sources for antifusariosis treatment, evaluation of testing methods, and information on their advantages and limitations and to determine those with real efficacy. Despite the important number of natural products with remarkable in vitro efficiency, the limiting point is their in vivo application for soil microorganisms (in this case: Fusarium oxysporum). Therefore, more advanced researches are needed to solve this problem.
