Beba Veche is a locality in Timiş County. Its coordinates in what latitude is

The agricultural land of the commune is composed of the following: arable 7.767 ha, pastures 976 ha, hay land 3 ha, vineyard 16 ha and orchard 30 ha. As for the fertility classes, for the "arable" land the situation is the following: 1st class 804 ha (9.3%), 2nd class 2193 ha (25.5%), 3rd class 2755 ha (31.9%), 4th class 2777 ha (32.2%) and 5th class 98 ha (1.1%). The limiting factors that influence land quality in this area are represented by the phenomenon of severe salinization (salinization on 6.3% and alkalisation on 34.5% of the surface), low humus content (0.82%).
