Abstract: -Water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes) is an oceanic macrophyte and one of the worst sea-going weeds in the world and Egypt. The grouping of substantial metals in water hyacinth was higher in roots than in shoots. Nutrient content e.g. ammonia, nitrate, nitrite and phosphate was higher in the shoots of water hyacinth. Water hyacinth is a wellspring of phytochemicals which have a medicinal function. In this study, the high degree of peroxidation and nonenzymatic antioxidant systems were detected in leaf extract… Show more

“…Water hyacinth is rich in oxidative enzymes and non-enzymatic antioxidant metabolites may be involved in the chemical defences of plants against plant pathogens. The foliar spray using the E. crassipes extract significantly decreased the wheat leaf spots and increased grain yield (Haggag et al, 2017).…”

“…Plant extracts have been reported to improve germination, reduce disease incidence and severity. Haggag et al, (2017) reported that the foliar spray of leaf extracts of Eichhornia crassipes significantly decreased the incidence of net blotch disease of wheat in two field trials compared to the untreated (control) which increased yield.…”

“…The biomass of water hyacinth in Nigeria's aquatic environment has been estimated at between 28.8 and 32.2 tons of dry matter/hectare/year [ 25 ]. The ethanolic and methanolic extract of water hyacinth revealed the presence of the following compounds: alkaloids, flavonoids, phenols, carbohydrates, proteins, amino acids, tannins, terpenoids, saponins, and glycosides [ 26 28 ]. Furthermore, an analysis of the dried biomass of water hyacinth by Sivasankari and Ravindran [ 29 ] is as reported in Table 1 .…”

“…It was observed that MTT assay analysis showed inhibition of cell growth. Haggag et al [ 26 ] also reported the fungicidal and bactericidal actions of the extracts of water hyacinth. The leaf extracts of water hyacinth have been established to possess phytochemicals with potent antioxidant and hepatoprotective activities in vitro [ 93 ].…”
