Soybean (Glycine max [L.], is known for its great medicinal and nutritional value. It has capacity to accumulate high concentrations of cadmium (Cd). Studies were carried out to evaluate secondary metabolites production and biochemical potential of plant exposed to Cadmium-rich growing medium (i.e. soil). Cadmium treatment [in the form of Cadmium chloride (CdCl 2 )] at supply of 0.25, 0.50, 1.00 and 2 mg L -1 increased the amino acid, protein, proline and diadzene content of field grown seeding at different developmental stages of Glycine max (L.).The enhancement was significant at cadmium treatment of 1 mg L -1 . The activity of antioxidant enzymes viz. superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT) and glutathione reductase (GR) increased with increase in treatment of cadmium in all developmental stages soybean seeding but increase in enzyme activity was more significant at cadmium treatment of 2 mg L -1 . Present finding suggests that higher diadzene production in cadmium enriched soyabeen contributed to higher medicinal value.
