The antifungal activity of phenolic compounds extracted from olive pomace against Alternaria solani, Botrytis cinerea and Fusarium culmorum was investigated. Olive pomace, a by-product of olive oil production, was used as a source of phenolic compounds. The extracted phenolics were added to a medium to reach phenol concentration of 0,1 and 0,2 %(w/v) and tested for their antifungal activity against the three fungi. In addition, the fungi were cultivated in a medium containing a commercial fungicide in the concentration of 0,2 % (w/v). Both of the phenolic concentrations inhibited the growth of all three fungi with the higher being more effective. It resulted in a four-fold reduction of the mycelial growth rate of A. solani and F. culmorum. The present study demonstrated that the phenolic compounds derived from olive pomace hold a good promise as a natural fungicide against common pathogens to crops.
