Agriculture is among the sectors strongly affected by climate changes (the largest damage in agriculture is usually caused by drought), which simultaneously influence the volume of production and safety of products. Besides, soybean is one of the most important crops used for human and animal nutrition, and certain branches of light industry. In climate conditions of Serbia, soybean is predominantly produced in the system of dry land farming. The chapter has several closely related goals. Primarily, it presents the detailed analysis of the economic importance of soybean production for the Republic of Serbia (with a special focus on sustainability of national food security). One of the goals is the assessment of cumulative losses incurred in the soybean production in the climatic conditions of the Republic of Serbia (dominantly caused by drought) in the last several years. Also, it was estimated the possible positive impact of irrigation on the current state of food security on the macro level, as well as the higher profitability of soybean production on the micro level.
