The antifungal activity of water extracts of dried leaves of folded blackberry (Rubus plicatus W. et N.), walnut (Juglans regia L.), black currant (Ribes nigrum L.), and aspen (Populus tremula L.) was assessed in the in vitro experiment. The tested fungi were Alternaria alternata, Botrytis cinerea, Rhizoctonia solani, Fusarium culmorum, F. oxysporum and F. solani. It was found that all tested extracts inhibited the development of A. alternaria and F. oxysporum, whereas the strongest inhibiting effect was exhibited by extracts of aspen (A. alternata and F. oxysporum), black current (A. alternata) and folded blackberry (F. oxysporum). The tested extracts had no effect on B. cinerea.Keywords:
