Zav’yalova N.E., Kazakova I.V.


We examined the quantity and the chemical composition of the surface mass and the numdah entering the sod-podzolic soil yearly under grass-forb meadow. The genetic profile was characterized agrochemically, and particle size distribution, humus fractional composition and biological activity of the soil under natural conditions of soil formation were studied.

Keywords: sod-podzolic soil, natural grass-forb meadow, agrochemical characteristics, fractional composition, biological activity
