      <Abstract>M.phaseolina is soil inhabitant and it is pathogenic to wide range of host crops. In present investigation, M.phaseolina was tested against Oilseeds crop extracts of semi mature stage of plant parts i.e. capsule/pod/head, leaf, stem, root Viz., Castor, Safflower, Mustard, Sunflower, Groundnut, Soybean, Sesame at different concentrations and also tested source of carbon and Amino acids  at different concentrations utilized by the fungus for its growth under In-vitro conditions. Results were recorded  on the oil seed crop extracts significantly enhanced mycelial growth  was recorded at all concentrations except castor stem  extract was recorded lowest mycelial growth over control, therefore Carbon sources @ 250ppm  and 500ppm  of Galactose, Mannose and  Inositol, Glucose, Fructose, Dextrose and Manitol significantly influenced mycelial growth of M.phaseolina .All the eight carbon sources have shown almost similar trend of mycelial development  and  amino acid  sources @2500ppm, 5000 ppm, 75000, 10000ppm of maximum mycelial growth was recorded at 2500ppm, 5000ppm, 75000 as increasing concentration reduced growth of mycelium but L-Lysine monohydrate recorded lowest mycelial growth at all concentrations.</Abstract>
