Abstract

The territory taken into study is the North-Western zone of Dolj District and it is
characterized by climate province c.f.a.x., being located in an oak woody area with vernal herbaceous vegetation underneath yet with grass vegetation and pulses. The bedrock is variable as formation, generally, clay with the underground water at deep depth that do not influences the formation of soils, excepting the low zones where there is found shallow, close to the soil surface (under 1 m). The main identified soils are: preluvosol, found on plateaus, having a fine or middle texture due to the clay bedrock material yet to the intense alteration processes, the eroded prelovosol, on versants with different degree of declination where the erosion is slow and long a high part from the shallow horizon, the luvisol , in micro depression zones on wide plateaus, characterized by more intense processes of debazeification , eluviation and iluviation after which there was released colloidal silica and on the long of the valleys there are encountered the glaysated aluviosol, where the underground water is shallow and it has determined processes more or less intense of gleysation.
