Results of physical-chemical examinations performed during the SOILMAP project. To understand soil management and to maintain soil quality, we need to know about the chemical aspects of the soil, such as: soil pH, Soil texture cation exchange capacity, organic matter

The soil texture from the researched points, in the first 40 cm, is mediumclay loamy (soil sampling 1, 3, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10), medium loamy (soil sampling 2), loamy clay (soil sampling 4, 7) for the hungarian samples and medium clay loamy (soil sampling 1, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10), loamy clay (soil sampling 2) , silty clay (soil sampling 4) for the romanian samples.
Soil pH is probably the most commonly measured soil chemical property and is also one of the more informative.

Phosphorus (P) is essential for plant growth. It stimulates growth of young plants, giving them a good and vigorous start. Phosphorus management and nutrition has both economic and environmental implications.

To fulfill its many roles in plants, potassium K is absorbed in rather large quantities, even exceeding the amount of nitrogen
