Abstract: The existence and economic development of any society, regardless of its type, is unimaginable outside material resources of the biosphere that have owned and have a weight determined by the progress of society, the primary issue at the beginning of the XXI se¬col is to ensure agricultural production at an level asked the explosive growth of world population. In this sense, the knowledge of ecopedological resources should be one more intensely imperative of modern agriculture that turns soils (fertilization and improvements as well different ways), and plants (creation of new varieties and hybrids). The paper provides the basic knowledge and methodological elements for inventory, classification and assessment of ecopedological resources for their sustainable use integrating itself in the wider complex study of natural resources and to realize them with the environment protection at a time when It is felt the need to educate society about the importance of soil as the basis of existence of human community, and support component of terrestrial ecosystems. In this context the purpose of research undertaken is the collection, processing and interpretation of soil information for evaluating the quality of cover soil and its origins in preoccupations scientific and practical today's increasingly hard to identify and put in place an integrated management of agro-ecosystems, environmental for soil and environment conservation. The subject is the land situated between Mures (north), the mountain Poiana Rusca, Ţarcu, Godeanu, Cerna and Mehedinti (east), the Danube (south) and the state border with Serbia (southwest) and Hungary (northwest) or soils identified in that area. They were studied in relation to environmental factors, natural and modified by man, which determines existence, together forming units of homogeneous ecological area (TEO) with specific suitability and different technological requirements, placing the work in current concerns of agricultural research and practice at national and international level for the study of relations between ecopedological conditions and productivity of farmland.
