The survey area is 8.97 ha, divided into 3 cadastral plots, namely A 1201, L 1221 and A 865. We studied a series of chemical and physical soil properties in Satu Mare County, Romania. Of the chemical soil indices, we determined IN (%), P (ppm), K (ppm), pH, base saturation degree (V%) and the sum of the exchange bases (m.e./100 g soil), and the of physical soil indices, clay content. The topic studied is of real interest in terms of practical importance as, after the assessment of soil resources, practical solutions are identified, solutions that lead over time to a development of modern and sustainable agriculture and to the need to develop concepts to bring together economic and environmental approaches, thus leading to a common language and a systemic vision of its ecosphere and subsystems. The human factor is the one that uses natural resources in a specific way, not only to satisfy its strict biological needs but also to create the means of transforming the environment, to satisfy some requirements generated by social development. People have an extraordinarily high capacity to consume a series of products that the soil gives, so that man’s consumption of renewable resources takes place at a pace that often goes beyond the rhythm of restoration, i.e., overexploitation of these resources occurs, which can lead, in time, to exhaustion of soil resources. That is why we must always find practical solutions to help obtain high, good quality, low-cost production without exhausting existing soil resources.
