"The LegumeGap Project"
LegumeGap is an ERANET SusCrop project on yield-limiting factors for soybean and faba bean in Europe. It employs crop modelling, data mining, field experiments and geographical information systems to estimate potential yield and the reductions due to management, adaptation and knowledge factors across the continent. Breeding-related results show the undiminished importance of resistance to abiotic and biotic stresses along with regionally appropriate phenology for these legumes to contribute to European crop and food systems.
