This book will be an invaluable resource. Grain legume yields are considered to be more variable than those of cereals, and yield fluctuations are one of the main reasons farmers give for not growing these crops (Von Richthofen et al., ).However, little and contradictory quantitative evidence is available on yield stability in grain legumes.

Some statistical analyses suggest that the yield stability of grain legumes is.
