Abstract

The researches were carried out during 2009-2011 in the Agricultural Research and Development Station Oradea, on the hill with 10% slope, in the plots for check flow. The soil losses were determined every year; the biggest soil losses were registered in the variant with clean fallow, followed by the variants with maize seeded from top to valley, maize seeded on the level curves, wheat and pasture. The soil erosion had a bigger effect in the variant with maize seeded from top to valley in comparison with the variant with maize seeded on the level curves. The soil losses registered in the variant with maize seeded from top to valley were bigger than the soil losses registered in the variant with maize seeded on the level curves direction. As consequence, the bigger differences of the yields determined in the base and top of the hill every year studied.

Keywords: check flow plots, erosioned soil, maize, wheat, pasture, clean fallow

JEL Classification: A10
