An exception to this trend has occurred for soybean Glycine maxa widely grown grain legume that has increased within the lest five decades in the United States from almost nothing to tens of millions of hectares. However, the P uptake and the changes in rhizosphere soil P pools seem to depend also on legume species. Despite the described beneficial effects, there are still concerns on the introduction of grain legumes into cropping sequences.
