In the present study, the hydroalcoholic extract of Seidlitzia rosmarinus was obtained using maceration method and its antifungal effect against fungi species causing orange fruit rot (Penicillium digitatum and Penicillium italicum) according to disk diffusion agar, well diffusion agar, minimum inhibitory concentration, and minimum fungicidal concentration were evaluated. In addition, the content of total phenols and flavonoids and the antioxidant activity of the hydroalcoholic extract of S. rosmarinus were determined. According to the results of disk diffusion and well diffusion agar tests, the antifungal activity of the extract was dependent on its concentration and P. digitatum was the most sensitive fungal strain to the extract. Moreover, both fungal strains were unable to grow in the presence of 32 mg/ml extract and the minimum fungicidal concentration for P. digitatum was 512 mg/ml. The contents of total phenols and total flavonoids of the extract were 26.19 mg GAE/g and 11.10 mg QE/g, respectively. The results of antioxidant activity showed that the hydroalcoholic extract of S. rosmarinus is able to scavenge DPPH (112.14 μg/ml) and ABTS (103.46 μg/ml) free radicals. In general, the results of this study show that the hydroalcoholic extract of S. rosmarinus plant contains phenolic compounds with antifungal and antioxidant potential.
