Physical-geographical Conditions Defining the Land Fund Structure and Soil Quality in the Low Banat Plain

Cristian Iosif Şandor, Gheorghe David, Dorin Ţărău


Obtaining high vegetal productions depends on the quality of the biological material that can manifest its highest productive potential only under optimum environmental and technical conditions [3].Since a complex of factor and environmental conditions altered in time and space by the humans influences agricultural production, we need to know in detail all determining factors from the perspective of their productive capacity so that we can choose the most adequate uses for the reasonable management of renewable natural resources.Soil is, among factors and physical-geographical conditions determining for the environment in which plants grow and yield, a major component whose role is, on one hand, to point to the evolution of the features of growing plants and, on the other hand, to store all the influences of the other conditions and factors: thus, it records with fidelity and in a continuous way all the phenomena occurring in a certain place and time interval.Taking into account all this, the paper presents a few aspects regarding physical-geographical features and soil quality based on both soil science and agro-chemical information from the archives of the Soil and Agro-chemical Study Office (SASO) Timişoara and on such studies as “Research regarding the soil and climate and anthropogenic factors impacting land productivity in the Low Banat Plain”carried out within the doctoral school between 2015 and 2017.
