The goal of this paper was to determine and know the main hydric features of the studied soil: hygroscopicity coefficient, field capacity, total water capacity, and useful water capacity. (5) The objectives aimed at were: characterising the studied area from the perspective of its natural conditions; studying the main hydric features of the soils; describing and determining the main hydric features of the cambic chernozem in Timisoara, Romania – hygroscopicity coefficient, field capacity, total water capacity, and useful water capacity; and diversifying and specialising soil researches and studies in the field.(2) What influences negatively the soil yielding potential in the area are mainly rain water stagnating, which delays certain works, particularly during rainy periods. (1,3) In Romania, the area affected by moisture excess measures about 3 million ha (from 6,300 ha in the Dobrogei Plateau to 882,900 ha in the Danube flooding area), i.e. about 13% of the total area of the country and over 20% of its agricultural lands. Knowing these features can help us take all necessary measures to increase the yielding capacity of these soils and get higher better-quality yields even on soils with moisture excess. (4)
