Agriculture is one of the main drivers, which pushes a society for change, showing influences in both the economic and social environment. Agriculture in turn is influenced by various factors that get out of human control, such as natural and technical factors. Some of the main natural factors are the shape of the land and the type of soil, and the technical factors are represented by mechanization, irrigation, chemicalization, etc. The increase in large-scale agricultural production has led to the emergence of intensive agriculture. A system that is based on the concentration and specialization of production. The different components of the technological system are intensively applied. There are issues that are in favour of this type of agriculture and others against it, because the use of chemicals to accelerate crop production pollutes the waters and soils. Through this paper we want to present a case study on an intensive agricultural system located in Gataia. The area of this locality offers an ideal environment for crop diversity due to the plain area in which it is located, with a temperate continental climate and soils of high fertility. The data presented are collected from a farm for a period of 3 years, more precisely for the years 2018, 2019, 2020 with a total area of 4.160.21 ha. The main agricultural crops within the farm being wheat and corn and the rest of the crops are intended as a feed base for the livestock sector that the farm owns and to carry out a judicious crop rotation.
