Hydrogen cyanide is a highly toxic volatile compound which interferes with the cellular respiration by inhibiting the cytochrome oxidase enzyme in mitochondria. Root area of crops were consisting several bacteria that may have beneficial aspects. The objective of this study was to investigate the qualitative capability of hydrogen cyanide production by Pseudomonas fluorescens species isolates. Isolation of Pseudomonas fluorescens isolates were carried out on King’s B medium. Twelve Pseudomonas fluorescens species were isolated from the Rhizosphere of Fabaceae family namely faba bean screened for the production of hydrogen cyanide. For the production of hydrogen cyanide, Pseudomonas fluorescens isolates were streaked into King’s B agar plates supplemented with glycine. Total of Pseudomonas fluorescens isolates had a potential to produce hydrogen cyanide. Therefore, these isolated can be used as a biological control against plant pathogen microbes.
