Agriculture is a traditional branch in the Romanian economy that has as the means of production agricultural land (all land located within the borders of a country, including those under water), which provides food for the population, raw materials for industries and products for export. It has been practiced in our country since prehistoric times, for a longtime predominating pastoralism, practiced in several forms including transhumant (the permutation of the herds depending on the season from high to low areas). Through this research we want to highlight the agrochemical characteristics of the soil resources in Şepreuş, Arad County, Romania. In order to highlight these characteristics, six plots with different surfaces were chosen: Ceichi (1ha), Jidovi (20ha), Armata (7ha), Cabana (5ha), Ciobanu (7ha), Goldis (14ha), from which soil samples were taken, on which a series of analyzes were performed. Among the characteristics sought to find out we can find the pH value, the supply of humus, phosphorus, potassium, and the calcium carbonate content, and the texture of the soil, were monitored, on all the six plots, mentioned above. For each plot, the recommended fertilizer requirement (NPK) was calculated, depending on the crop to be established but also taking into consideration the previous crop. The main crops present on these plots are corn, autumn wheat and autumn barley.
