Summary

The aim of the project is to develop a soil survey methodology which provides farmers necessary and relevant information to identify the best cultivation technologies to combat soil degradation. The main focus area of the project is Hajdú-Bihar county, where a wide variety of soils are found, such as different steppe soils (mainly Chernozems), salt affected soils (mainly Solonetz) and high clay content soils (Vertisols).

The project utilizes the newest soil survey methodologies and equipment such as aerial and space surveys, automated field surveys (RTK-based terrain model, VERIS, stationary EC sensors), GIS methods and many more. The final guideline will support soil scientists to perform a detailed, specific soil survey to help farmers achieve sustainable soil and land management.
