Chapter synopsis: Flooding is a serious abiotic stress that drastically causes soybean yield loss around the world. As a result, a large number of studies have been conducted to understand soybean responses to flooding on agronomic, morphological, physiological and molecular levels. This chapter summarizes current understanding of flooding impact and the natural adaptation of soybean to flooding. The chapter also evaluates current and future flooding survival strategies, including the use of genetic engineering to improve flooding tolerance, and various agronomic techniques for the management of flooding stress. It is concluded that an integrated approach is likely to prove most effective in preventing and mitigating the effects of flooding on soybean growth and yield.
