Legumes are a vital food source next to cereals. Legumes play an important role in the effective management of fertilizers and improve soil fertility, thereby sustaining agriculture. However, the productivity of legumes is significantly affected by acidic soils, which are re prevalent in many agricultural areas. Acidic soil tolerance in legume crops is a complex trait influenced by various mechanisms, including root adaptations, nutrient uptake efficiency, and tolerance to toxic elements. Understanding these mechanisms and developing effective screening methods are essential for breeding and selecting acid soil tolerant legume genotypes/varieties. This review paper provides an overview of the mechanisms associated with acidic soil tolerance in legume crops and examines the current screening methods used for identifying tolerant genotypes.
