Examination of the adaptation, growth, development, and management systems employed for producing and maintaining the major legume field crops grown throughout the world. Approaches taken to produce these crops economically, and in keeping with prudent stewardship of the entire ecosystem, will be analyzed. The connections between Crop Science and related disciplines that enable global needs for food, feed, fiber, and specialty crops to be met will be explored. Cultural practices leading to long-term and economically viable crop yield and quality, including those impacting on soil quality, weed, insect, and disease behavior will be emphasized. Both traditional approaches and the newer molecular biology techniques associated with legume crop improvement will be discussed.
