RESEARCH ON THE ECO-PEDOLOGYCAL BASIS OF AGRICULTURAL LAND PRODUCTIVITY FROM THE BANAT LOW PLAIN (MURES-BEGA INTERFLUVE) PUBLISHEDAdrian ŢĂRĂU, V. TABĂRĂ, D. DICU
The research goal is the accumulation of scientific data on the ecological and soil conditions necessary to support the agricultural land productivity to promote agricultural practices that use in an sustainable way the edaphic cover from the investigated area. The objectives and activities fall within the current agricultural research and agricultural practice, on international and national level, for the study of the relations between soil conditions and the productivity of agricultural land. The importance, originality and timeliness of work consists in the need of knowledge of environmental and soil conditions, this causing major strands of rural development, of edaphic cover and environment protection. Given these considerations, the authors of this paper tries to present some aspects concerning the use of soil information in promoting environmentally friendly farming practices. Following its settlement, the natural conditions (relief, lithology, hydrology, vegetation) are specific to a low subsidence plains, ramble and build where they formed and evolved main soil types with specific forms of mycro-relief features. Each of the soils identified within the area studied were characterized according to Soil Studies Elaboration Methodology (Vol. I, II, III) using the 23 indicators of evaluation, indicators and features are most important characters, more significant, more precise and easier measurable, which is usually found in soil studies and research work developed by OSPA territories after 1987. The paper offers basic knowledge and methodological elements for evaluation and characterization of the natural and anthropogenic resources, in the hope that the information presented will arouse interest of the decision maker so in the near future agricultural research and practice with environmental protection, to strive for development interdisciplinary studies, not being able to talk about a healthy environment without a healthy soil. Such detailed knowledge of productive and technological characteristics of the contributing, restrictive or limiting factors of agricultural production, both in terms of the actual event and in terms of real possibilities for modifications, may be better for decision-making bodies (government, administration local) a valuable tool for achieving the most appropriate practical measures for the benefit of plant biomass production to improve its conditions of human life and the entire community.
