In this study, the antifungal effects of essential oils and methanol plant extracts of Sideritis germanicopolitana BORNM grown in Tokat province was screened in vitro against, Rhizoctoniasolani J.G. Kuhn 1858, Sclerotinia sclerotiorum (Lib.) de Bary, (1884), Alternaria solani and Fusarium oxysporum f. Sp. Lycopersici. The chemical composition of extracted were also identified. According to of GC/MS analysis, a total of 20 components were identified, including a-pinene (58.34%), alpha-Limonen (10.48%), beta-pinene (8.24%) and manoyl oxide (4.79%) as basic components. Essantial oil showed antifungal activities in vitro against all tested fungi except Rhizoctonia solani J.G. Kuhn 1858. These results revealed that essential oils and methanol extracts of Sideritis germanicoplitana BORNM. could be used in the future for controlling plant diseases.
