Abstract

Mirsayapov, R. R., Asylbaev, I. G., Kurmasheva, N. G., Lukmanov, R. A. & Miftakhov, I. R. (2019). Agroecological assessment of soils in the system of agricultural land use. Bulgarian Journal of Agricultural Science, 25 (Suppl. 2), 187–190

Soil monitoring plays an important role in the soil fertility control. It includes systematic observation over agrochemical, agrophysical and other soil changes. As things stand at the moment, farming industry is impossible without continuous land monitoring. The objects of the research are the soils of the Bugulma-Belebey Upland of the Belebey region of the Republic of Bashkortostan. According to the soil zoning, the Belebey region belongs to the Pre-Urals steppe zone. Geomorphologically it is situated in the south-easternmost tip of the Bugulma-Belebey Upland which is mostly a plateau-like plain. Thanks to the research results, agricultural manufactures got the possibility to use land resources effectively and to develop scientifically based arable farming systems. During the research soil maps of 1985 were corrected. A new actual digitized map of the Belebey region of the Republic of Bashkortostan was created. 

Keywords: soil monitoring; widespread soils; parent rocks; farming; humus.
