Abstract

The paper presented deals with the problem of soil fertility potential, but impaired due to quantity and time distribution of rainfall, due to decreasing precipitation and increasing amounts of global average temperature where crop irrigation may be the main solution to obtain production to meet food needs of the population (Christian Brauner, 2002) .
In Romania, areas affected by drought and desertification are Dobrogea, southern Oltenia, Wallachia and Moldavia, and Baragan, with low precipitation amounts, ranging from 300-500 mm and a global average air temperature in the south and east, rising by 0.80 C (Guidance on adapting to climate change, 2008).
According to statistics provided by the INS, the total irrigated surface waning,
determine productions and low yields of the crops (grains and maize) in the studied area, South - Wallachia.
