Quality of agricultural soils in Slovakia

Jozef Kobza

Abstract


Risk elements distribution on agricultural soils in Slovakia is evaluated in this contribution. The measured results have been obtained on the basis of soil monitoring system in Slovakia which is consistently running since 1993 year. Risk elements have been analysed in extraction by aqua regia according to uniform analytical procedures in soil (Kobza et al. 2011). On the basis of the available results it may be said that the agricultural soils of Slovakia are not contaminated except some contaminated sites which are mostly situated on the industrial areas (anthropogenic impact) as well as on the areas situated under geogenic influence (mostly some mountainous regions). Their unfavourable state lasts often a long period and agricultural land use of those affected fields is not recommended.
