Abstract

The objectives of the current project were to analyze the phytotoxic, insecticidal and anti-termites activities of MJME (Mirabilis jalapa Methanolic Extract) and it successive solvent fractions. Methanol preparation and its different fractions were utilized to assess the phytotoxic, insecticidal and anti-termites activities of the selected plant. The MJME and its various fractions expressed low to good potentials against the Lemna minor at various concentrations. These fractions were also investigated for their insecticidal potentials, eliciting good activity against the tested insects. The crud extract and its various fractions were also tested for their anti-termites activity expressed good results. Phytotoxic, insecticidal and anti-termites activities of MJME and its various fractions were significant. Extensive researches are need of the hour to collect pure constituents practiced in the synthesis of novel and effective medications.
