Abstract—This research was undertaken to help mushroom farmers in SitioPactil in BaukoMonamon Sur Mt. Province, Philippines to control Black molds in their farm and to tap the beneficial use of Garlic leaves. Black mold tends to lower the production of spawns in Mushroom Farm as nutrient competitor. Experimental research method with four treatments was utilized. Black molds were cultured under standard laboratory condition. Dried garlic leaves was macerated in 70% ethanol and concentrated in Rotary evaporator. Three concentrations (30%, 45% and 60%) served as experimental groupsand were used to inhibit the growth of Black molds by Poison Technique Method. Data was analyzed using ANOVA single factorial and Fisher Least Significant Difference Test as post hoc test. Findings of the study revealed that least mycelial growth, was obtained from treatments with 30%, 45% and 60% ethanolic dried garlic leaf extracts. The zone of inhibition was also high on the said treatments which implie that any of the three concentrations inhibited the growth of Black Mold.

Index Terms—Allium sativa, doratomycesspp, pleurotus ostreatus.
