Abstract:
Apium graveolens L belonging to the family "Umbelliferae" an unadventurous vegetable and also known to be beneficial in the treatment of a number of diseases was obtained in the month of May-July, from its natural habitat as wild species and the Apium graveolens seeds (Celery) from three different markets of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa i.e. Peshawar, Swat and DI Khan. During this study, the wild plant as well as the market celery is investigated for bioassays. The crude Hexane extract was screened for their lethality bioassay. The research work revealed that Hexane extract showed no brine shrimp lethality while the extract exhibited negative insecticidal activity. The result indicated that the crude Hexane extract showed strong inhibitory activity against Trichphyton longifuss (80%) andMicrosporum canis (80%). Antifungal bioassay of Hexane crude extract displayed some promising results.
