USING PEDOLOGICAL AND AGROCHEMICAL INFORMATION FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF NITRATES DIRECTIVE IN THE ADMINISTRATIVE-TERRITORIAL UNIT VLADIMIRESCU PUBLISHEDA. ILIUȚĂ, B. BEȘTI, D. DOLOGA None
Research goal is to gather, process and interpret scientific information on the physical,chemical and hydro-physical of soils to provide specialized technical support for the governmentauthorities to develop the administrative territory Vladimirescu. Importance, originality and timeliness ofwork is the necesity of soil and environmental protection by implementing the Action Program forvulnerable zones to nitrate from agricultural sources, in Arad county, it being the focal point formonitoring the implementation of the Nitrates Directive for soil and crops, to ensure information for thecountry report on Nitrates Directive. Physico-chemical properties of soil samples (texture, pH, humusand N, P, K, content etc..) and biochemical and microbial diversity of the samples were analyzed in theLaboratory of OSPA Arad after national norms and standards approved by the Standards Association ofRomania (ASRO). In terms of geomorphology, the village is located in Banato-Crisana Plain, part of theWestern Plain of Romania, the eastern extremity of Arad Plain in the Cris-Mures interfluve, unit formedexclusively by the cumulative action of the Mures River. Agricultural land of the village has an area of10.054 ha, consists of the following uses: arable (90.9%), pasture (8.7%), grassland (0.3%) and orchards(0.1%). By grouping the land units is resulting the following dominant soils: Psamosol (31,40 ha),Alluvial soils (1032,41 ha), Chernozem (65,69 ha), Eutryc cambisol (4304,85 ha), Pelosol (2587,75 ha),Vertisol (1009,75 ha), Gleysol (22,15 ha). Knowledge of these special features of the soil presents atheoretical and practical importance. Theoretical, because it provides to the expert the posibility tointerpret the phenomena that occur in soil and to predict soil evolution in particular and the widerenvironment in terms of present and future health and warns the farmer what action should be taken tobring optimum soil conditions for growth and development of plan.
