Table 4 Mc, and Tm are compared to Tr and the aqueous extract is compared to ethanol extract when the model is fitted. Tr was more sensitive than Mc (p<0.002) and more sensitive than Tm (p<0.035) to the antifungal activity of C. gynandra. Comparing the aqueous extract and ethanol extract, there was no statistically significant difference in the effect of extract on fungal strains (p=0.8960). However, dilution had a strongly significant effect on the outcome (p<0.0001)
