Abstract

Soil quality can be characterised by the harmony between it's physical and biological state and the fertility. From the practical crop production viewpoint, some important contrasting factors of soil quality are: (1) soil looseness - compaction; (2) aggregation - clod and dust formation; friable structure - smeared or cracked structure; (3) organic material: conservation - decrease; (4) soil moisture: conservation - loss; water transmission - water-logging; (5) at least soil condition as a result of the long term effect of land use moderates or strengthens climatic harm. In our long-term research project practical soil quality factors were examined in arable field and experimental conditions. We state that prevention of the soil quality deterioration can be done by the developing and maintaining harmony between land use and environment. Elements of the soil quality conditions such as looseness, aggregation, workability, organic matter, water transport are examined and the improving methods are suggested. Tillage and production factors which can be adopted to alleviate the harmful climatic impacts are also summarised.
