Recovery of sandy soils has always been a matter of strict necessity in the word. In Romania, soils also occur among several relief units, their areas totaling 439,000 ha, 381,000 ha of agricultural use, such as wind 272,000 ha. For the purpose of agricultural solis must have at least 50 cm thick (but usually more than 2 m) coarse texture (sandy or sandy loam), with less than 12% clay < 0.002 mm and a low humus content (often under 2%). As a prerequisite, in the exploitation of high wind undulating sandy land necessary to start implementation of development projects for their agricultural mechanization and the introduction of irrigation. The first intervantion of this kind in our country have been performed in Oltenia Plain, specifically Blahnita Plain and Plain Romanaţiului, respectively Dăbuleniului field. Fitting in irrigated sandy land in our country to increase agricultural production led to the total change in soil cover.He had less regard to the conservation of soil horizon or no education and land leveling pursued primarily to complete mechanization of agricultural operations in terms of uniform distribution of water on the surface leveled.
