The soil in his complexity can be understood in terms of the known and the particular natural environment in which it developed and evolved. He is a real natural history, which appears as a summary plan knowledge organically bound constants and subsequently pedogenetical development environment other items.This paper presents a study of soils from Plapcea Basin area, covering 25,000 ha, located in the south of the country, in its Cotmeana Piedmont, Piedmont subdivision. The soil cover of

Physical and geographical conditions of the area, parental materials, sediment soil formation and composition of various size clay deposits, of which only clay (< 0.002 mm) over 55 %, lead to accelerated erosion of these soils. Based on the study of the natural and the coating of soil erosion intensity was translated into a map of soil erosion occurs as the limiting factor in terms of slope relief, which aside hundreds of acres of land.
