Phytophthora Capsici is an important pathogenic species attack on plants. Several metal complexes are known to act as antifungal agents. Amino acid complexes of transition metals are long been used for antifungal studies. The antifungal behavior of the glycine - copper acetate complex and glycine - cobalt acetate complex has been studied individually. The effect of the above mentioned glycine complexes were tried on mycelial growth phase and sporulation phase of Phytophthora Capsici, which is a typical fungus. Foot rot caused by Phytophthora Capsici is a major production constraint in black pepper, the king of spices. The results showed that glycine copper (II) complex is a very good antifungal agent. Even in lower concentration also these amino acid metal complexes are good inhibitors against two growth phases of Phytophthora Capsici.
