Currently, the total area of land subjected to erosion in the Republic of Moldova is of about 863,000 ha or 25% of the total surface (Rozloga Iu., 2010). The chernozems that occupy 788,000 ha (91% of the eroded surface) are most affected by erosion. The damage to the national economy caused by erosion is huge and is estimated at U.S. $ 200 million. Annually, an average of 30 tons of fertile soil is lost per hectare, or 26 million tons from the whole eroded surface of the Republic of Moldova. The areas affected by erosion continue to expand. The compost made from manure and deluvial soil can serve as an important source for the restoration of eroded arable soil fertility. The present paper attempts to highlight these opportunities.
