The sustainable soil/land management represents a modern form of ecosystem management, with the role to maintain and increase biodiversity and allow long term obtaining of high quality products. That is why the localizing and defining each land portion in the terrestrial space is of utmost importance in determining ecologic conditions, respectively the vocation of a certain land portion for certain agricultural or agri-forestry-pastoral uses. The purpose of the current research originates in the current scientific and practical preoccupations, more and more avid to accumulate knowledge regarding the physical, chemical and microbiologic characteristics of soils in relation with the local particularities of the natural frame for the land quality assessment, data which can be found in the pedologic studies carried out by territorial OSPA units. Through its geographic position and the relief terraced spacing with a general slope from east towards west, the studied territory determines a great diversity of ecologic conditions, generated by factor variability (cosmic-atmospheric and telluric-edaphic) which help establish an environment where plants can grow and deliver yields. The study refers to a 3693277 ha surface, of which 2430481 ha (65.81%), represent agricultural land, 16.61 % of Romania’s total agricultural surface of 14635520 ha (Order MADR 278/2011, Annex 1). The current paper’s importance and novelty consists in the necessity to protect the edaphic layer and the environment through: - accumulation of scientific data needed in order to underlie working technologies which should help preserve the edaphic layer and sustainably manage soil and water resources
