The action of 19 saponins and saponin fractions on 15 species of fungi, mostly plant pathogenes, was tested. The fungi showed different sensitivity, but no fungus was generally resistant to saponins. The fungistatic action on several species was observed at concentrations often below the real saponin content of many plants.
