Chapter synopsis: Grain legumes can fulfill several roles: they can be an immediate seed crop for consumption or marketing, a means to increase soil fertility as a result of their nutrient-rich residues and a key component of livestock feed. They are therefore likely to have an increasing role in agriculture in both less developed and developed regions of the world. However, a potential constraint on their use is their response to drought in the more arid conditions predicted in some parts of the world due to climate change. This chapter will review the responses of various grain legumes to water-deficit conditions, and then will discuss how grain legumes can be bred for the stomatal characteristics most appropriate for water-scarce environments.
