Application of the system of potential landevaluation of agricultural land in production practices
Ivelina Radovanova
Abstract: The study clearly presents the positive effect of the application of the newly developed “Methodology for the Potential Assessment of Agricultural Lands in Bulgaria” (Radovanova, 2022) and the corresponding software (Radovanova, 2023), simultaneously with the existing “Methodology for the Current Assessment,”, in agricultural production practices.
The object of research is agricultural land with alluvial-meadow soil above the floodplain terraces of the Iskar River in the Samokov field. In parallel, Land Evaluation was carried out through two approaches: 1. Actual Evaluation and 2. Potential Evaluation. It has been established that 2 crops are economically profitable to grow - potatoes and wheat.According to the individual ratings (minimum actual and maximum potential) of the characteristics of this land and the corresponding Field Ratings, guidelines are given for optimizing cultivation technologies and recommending triple crop rotation.
Keywords: actual and potential land evaluation; cultivation technologies; evaluation of land characteristics; field ratings; yields
