Bioindicator plant species are useful in deciding which species or cultivars of plants can be grown, which soil analysis should be performed and how soils with some limiting characteristics for plant growing can be improved. In agricultural practice Equisetum arvense is known as a bio-indicator species for acid soils with excess moisture. Diminution of acid soils can be achieved by liming. In such cases, the incorporation into the soil of calcium carbonate to diminish the acidity is not always justified. In order to make a correct decision, it is necessary to perform soil analysis. Equisetum arvense is frequently found on soils with a compacted plow pan. It is not justified in this case to carry out drainage works. We consider the results obtained from the studies carried out regarding the characteristics of the habitats of this species will be useful in order to take sustainable measures for the management of soil resources.
