of soil conditions justifying optimum land use categories. Soil survey of city appears as a necessity due to the changes
by editing the new Romanian System of Soil Taxonomy RSST-2003 and to determine the use and suitability of land
categories. As a result of soil survey have identified 12 genetic soil types belonging to classes Protisols, Luvisols,
