Quality of soil in the system of agro economic natural use supplying


Introduction. The article presents the issue of improving soil quality continues needs to be urgent. In particular, the task of improving the quality of agricultural land and considering the qualitative characteristics as an object of management remains unresolved, which necessitates further systematic research in this direction.

Aim and tasks. The purpose of the article is to substantiate the essence of soil quality management, the creation of land masses with appropriate soil characteristics as a means of obtaining safe products of standardized quality, maintaining the quality of the natural environment, preventing its degradation and using innovative industrial technologies in alternative agricultural systems. The task is in the justification that qualitative soil properties and fertility are inextricably linked.

Research results. The processes of soil formation and soil fertility are determined by a number of natural factors and the nature of economic activity, which affects not only the arable layer but also deeper soil horizons, as well as groundwater and groundwater. The optimal parameters of fertility indices should be established for each type of soil, if they can vary according to the fertility patterns as a combination of soil properties and modes that ensure the productivity of the land, the high quality and safety of the agricultural products derived from them. Returning lands to their original state is not always possible, but it is necessary. The application of certain approaches and technologies of updating the qualitative state of agricultural land causes the formation of conditionally clean land masses among those who potentially can become, after a certain time, suitable for obtaining safe production products. Ecologically clean land massifs, regardless of the degree of environmental readiness for economic use, are spatially limited, artificially created territories, the peculiar feature of which is the minimal cultivation of soil, the compliance with ampeloecological and agroecological requirements of cultivating those or other crops, the presence of indicator plants regulating contamination, the remoteness from pollutants, control of all agrotechnical measures, preservation and regulation of soil fertility.

Conclusion. To achieve ecological purity is possible through a variety of activities. Land massifs with special characteristics play an important role and have a close connection with modern agrotechnologies that differ from agrotechnical measures, with a more systematic and more closely related to the microperiods of agricultural crop development. It is determined that the management of ecological agriculture will facilitate the creation of land uses with special characteristics, which are achieved through the implementation of the general laws of agriculture and a number of principles, among which the principles of environmental orientation are combined with the principles that facilitate their implementation.
