Frenchbean, Phaseolus vulgaris L. (2n = 2x =22) is one of the most important leguminous vegetable grown for its tender fleshy green pods, shelled green seeds, and also dry beans. Cyanogenesis has been one of the important factors of plant defense mechanism. Many plants liberate HCN after mechanical or chemical injury to their cells or in course of fungal infection. The objective of current study was to correlate between the disease resistance against Anthracnose and HCN production in Frenchbean. The study was based on method of HCN estimation using picrate strips and their quantitative estimation through Cyanogen Kit Colour Chart (ppm) and by estimating the absorbance of picrate solution and Standard Curve of absorbance against HCN concentration (µg/ml). According to the results the highest HCN content has been seen in lines L line and D line.

Keywords: HCN Production, Correlation between Disease and HCN, Disease resistance against Anthracnose
