THE LONG-TERM TREND OF APPLYING CHEMICAL AND NATURAL FERTILIZERS IN ROMANIA
Published: 1 Nov 2023
Abstract: Land improvements, in the last decades, have received a special attention, representing the whole complex of hydrotechnical works that are carried out in order to improve land, ensure soil fertility by improving its qualities in order to capitalize on agricultural land for unproductive land or improve crop development conditions, agricultural land on some poorly productive land. The five categories of fertilizers applied on agricultural lands in Romania are chemical, nitrogen, phosphate, potassium and natural. The purpose of this paper is to study the management of the application of chemical fertilizers in the analysed period and implicitly the spatial evaluation. In the last 32 years the area of land on which chemical fertilizers have been applied has increased considerably from 3,528,354 ha in 1990 to 8,400,360 ha in 2021. Phosphate fertilizers are maintained around the average of 4,364,177 ha while natural fertilizers are applied on fairly small 826,420 ha in 1990 sweeping up to 877,985 ha in 2020. If we discuss the regions at the national level, a significant difference can be observed, even from singles to doubles in the region Centru 41,941,745 ha and the Sud-Muntenia region 8,753,2752 ha.
