Lentil (Lens culinaris Medikus) is an important cool season legume grown in Mediterranean and semiarid climates. The crop often faces terminal drought stress during the reproductive phase as a consequence of diminishing rainfall or plant available water and rising temperatures. Studies are now being initiated on the water-conservation traits in lentil. The first studies indicated substantial variation among genotypes in both soil water-conservation traits result from early partial stomata closure with soil drying and with vapor pressure deficit. A simulation of the potential benefit of a 1.1 kPa vapor pressure threshold for partial stomatal closure resulted in high probabilities of yield increase for Central India and in Bangladesh. Lentil: case study (Water-Conservation Traits to Increase....
