Abstract

Legumes are important crops and a major component of rice-based cropping systems (RBCS) in many Asian countries. Crop establishment following rice is an important constraint to production and is profoundly affected by soil physical, chemical, and biological factors, and by soil management. Considerable research has been done to understand the role of these factors on crop establishment. This review evaluates these studies and investigates future research needs, which include: classification of post-rice environments in terms of suitability for legumes; breeding programs specific to legume improvement for post-rice environments; seed characteristics allowing germination in still-saturated and compact soils; enriching germination and seedling vigor; and development of appropriate implements for tillage and sowing in post-rice soils.
