Abstract. The researches made to publish this paper were located in Barzava Plain (Timis and Caras Severin departments). The purpose of this research was to observe and monitor some of the soil fertility indicators,directly related by crop production in this area. Also, is very important to monitorise soil parameters in order to maintain soil fertility and to prevent soil pollution from different sources (agricultural or non-agricultural ones). For a correct and balanced fertilization, it is absolutly necessary to know in which category are the soil fertility indicators included. In Barzava Plain we identify many soil types, some of them are fertile and suitable for different crops, some of them have different restrictions regarding the water content or nutrients content. Soil pH and degree in base saturation values are included in different classes (from acid to alkalin). Soil phosphorus supply is poor in most of the studied cases, but potassium content is normal.
