LUCIAN DINCA, ION CHISALITA, ILIE-COSMIN CANTAR CHEMICAL PROPERTIES OF FOREST SOILS FROM ROMANIA WEST PLAIN
The present paper characterizes the soils from Romania’s West Plain from a chemical property point of view, based on data from forest management plans. As such, for each forest district, soil samples from characteristic forest areas are gathered once at ten years and then analyzed. In this manner, soil reaction, base saturation degree, total cationic exchange capacity, humus content and total nitrogen where analyzed and compared with results of soil analysis from other Romanian areas.
Keywords: Soil reaction, base saturation degree, humus content, total nitrogen
