Abstract

Lately,changing soil reaction as a consequence of culture technologies necessary measures to amend and improve them. The areas of soils with high acidity in Romania are very large and their improvement is expensive and lengthy. High acidity is due on the one hand, soil genesis and secondly the use of technologies and fertilizers which have decreased reaction from year to year. The research wereconducted in 2014 in the experimental field at Moara Domnească by using LF slag from metallurgy onthe chromic luvisol, demonstrated that it can be used as an amendment to correct acidic soil reaction. Increasing soil reaction resulted a better use of nutrients from soil and a significant increase in wheat yield. The highest yield were registered by the application rates of more than 3 t/ha of slag together with nitrogen (100 kg/ha).
