In the present study partially purified acetone extract of leaf of Terminalia arjuna which was found antifungal against Pythium aphanidermatum and Pythium myriotylum was exposed to various physical factors like heat, temperature, pH and sunlight. The exposed extracts then used against the test fungi. The effect of various physical factors were studied by exposing the extract to varying conditions of the parameters chosen for a specific time period, and then observing the effect as a function of change in MIC of extract against the test organism. Experiments were repeated thrice and three replicates were maintained besides control. In most of the cases there were no changes in the antifungal activity of the extract. Hence from the findings we conclude that the extract can be used in the preparation of bioformulation and have a good shelf life.
