Quantification of protein and total amino acids forming them was studied in fennel (Foeniculum vulgare) infected with Ramularia blight and powdery mildew. The content of proteins, total, free and bound amino acids were recorded in healthy and diseased counter parts. Different plant parts showed variation in their protein, total, free and bound amino acids contents. Diseased plant parts show relatively higher amount of proteins, total, free and bound amino acids than the normal counter parts.

Rajasthan contribute a large fennel growing as well as production areas. The seeds of fennel are used as a condiment or spice in curries, pickles and in cooking. Fennel seeds have many medicinal properties also. In view of the great economic importance of fennel, powdery mildew and Ramularia blight diseases are major problem of fennel cultivation in our country. Present study was undertaken to understand physiological changes of diseased plant parts. The biochemical estimation (quantification) of total proteins was estimated.
