Authors: Vona Viktória, Bakos István Attila, Giczi Zsolt, Kalocsai Renátó, Vona Márton, Kulmány István Mihály, and Centeri Csaba

The purpose of the present paper is Authors aim was to deliver a compilation of to summarize the Hungarian soil analysies methods and theas well as to present the advisory system for nutrient management advisory system. Both of them are based on several decades of work. We need to should learn from these past experiences of reasonable and good agricultural practices. We can only apply the present and future results of soil science and find out what direction should we develop, if we were aware of the results of the past and we calculate with their governing effects. The majority of our recent methods are based on historical researches and the present current statesituation of our field of scientific fieldce can only be judged and developed further if we knew the former history of the methodological findings. The recent Hungarian soil analysis system provides useful results that can be used very well today, however, the adaptation of the new international methods , learned from the follow-up of the international trends can might provide open new perspectives in for the Hungarian laboratory analyses methodology. TThe subject is extremely timely because there are hea never- met demand for cost and time effective, environmentally friendly soil analysis methods underpin how actual and hot the topic is. nowadays.

Growing NH4 + content of groundwater results in increasing exchangeable and fixed ammonium ion content of the soil. NH4 + bond in the soil may go again into solution parallel with the dilution of the soil solution but at a slower rate than fixing. This process influences significantly the NH4 + content of the soil. In settlements with no sewerage system the high NH4 + content of sewage flowing out of uninsulated septic tanks may increase the fixed NH4-N content of the soil that could have a significant effect on the quality of groundwater even after the potential disappearance of pollution sources.

In this study the effects of the fixed NH4-N content of the soil around an uninsulated residential septic tank on the purification processes of the groundwater were investigated. The septic tank in the study area was dismantled in 2014 after 27 years of operation as a sewerage system was constructed. When the tank was still in operation in 2012 and 2013, very high, 55–75 mg l-1 NH4 + content was measured in the water of the monitoring well 1 metre from the tank in the course of seasonal sampling. When sewage outflow was terminated in 2014 concentrations decreased right away but even 5 years after pollutant supply was stopped, concentrations (35–57 mg l-1) highly exceeding the pollution limit (0.5 mg l-1) were measured. Considering this very high concentration, it can be assumed that great amount of NH4 + is still released into the groundwater.

In order to prove this, the exchangeable and fixed NH4-N and NO3-N contents of the soil were determined by 20 cm down to a depth of 4 metres (2019). The measurements indicated the significant accumulation of exchangeable and fixed NH4-N in the zone between 220 and 400 cm. Highest fixed NH4-N concentrations of 457 mg l-1 were found between 220 and 240 cm suggesting that sewage outflow was most intense at this depth. Slow decrease in concentrations can be observed in deeper zones but concentrations higher than 350 mg l-1 were measured between 220 and 380 cm. Based on correlation analyses, the quantity of fixed NH4-N shows no correlation with the soil texture thus it can be stated that the vertical pattern of NH4-N content is determined dominantly by sewage outflow and its depth. In the unsaturated zone of the borehole a significant accumulation of NO3-N was also identified. The maximum of NO3-N was found in the zone between 100 and 140 cm. The peak nitrate calculated for NO3 - ion with a value >1300 mg kg-1 is 2.5 times the limit set for the nitrate content of the geological medium.

Based on the results, exchangeable and fixed NH4-N contents in the soil are still very high, 5 years after sewage outflow was stopped. The continuous solution of this component still contributes to the high NH4 + content of the groundwater. As a result, the contaminated soil in the immediate environment of the septic tank is still a pollution source.

Összefoglalás

A klímaváltozásnak köszönhetően a következő évtizedekben a talajok defláció veszélyezettségének mértéke emelkedni fog hazánkban (CSORBA et al. 2012). A kutatásunk során arra kerestünk választ, hogy a talajtani alaptulajdonságok miként befolyásolják a kritikus indítósebességet és jelenleg mennyire defláció veszélyeztetettek a Dél-Alföld talajai.

Mintaterületként a Szeged környéki talajokat választottuk. A vizsgálataink során megállapítottuk, hogy az összes vizsgált talajparaméter közül az agronómiai szerkezet, azon belül is a rögfrakció az, ami leginkább befolyásolja a kritikus indítósebességet. Ez felhívja a figyelmet az ember szerepére, aki megfelelő agrotechnikával képes lenne a széleróziós kockázat csökkentésére (BODOLAY 1966; SHAHABINEJAD et al. 2019). A szélcsatornás kritikus indítósebesség vizsgálatok eredményeit összevetettük az időjárási adatokkal, és ezek eredményeit kivetítettük Csongrád megye területére. Kutatásunk során meghatároztuk a széleróziós események jellemző éves előfordulását (homok: 16,8 esemény; homokos vályog és vályog 1,6 esemény; agyagos vályog: 0,4 esemény), ezen események átlagos hosszát (homok: 3,0 óra; homokos vályog és vályog 1,4 óra; agyagos vályog: 1,0 óra) és a deflációnak kitett területetek aránya Csongrád-megyében (homok: 8,4%; homokos vályog és vályog 29,1%; agyagos vályog: 20,0%).

Kutatásunkkal képet kaptunk arról, hogy a defláció mekkora területet érint és mennyire jelentős talajvédelmi probléma Csongrád megyében. Korábbi kutatásaink bizonyítják, hogy egy párperces széleróziós esemény is súlyos veszteséget okozhat a talajok tápanyagtartalmából (FARSANG et al. 2011; FARSANG 2016), mely csupán csak egy aspektusa a szélerózió negatív hatásainak.

Summary

Adaptation is the most important strategy to reduce the effect of climate change and soil erosion. During this process adequate, rational land use is necessary to ensure climate resilience. Therefore, the main objective in this study was to evaluate the susceptibility of different land use intensities (arable land and grassland) to soil erosion. The rainfall simulation method is a good tool to measure and estimate soil erosion in situ. The comparative measurements were carried out in the field with a Shower Power-02 simulator on 6 m2 plots in Gerézdpuszta, where the slope angles were ~8% and the simulated rainfall events had high intensities (~70-96 mm h−1). The runoff and soil loss were significantly higher from arable land. The runoff-infiltration ratio and runoff coefficient showed lower infiltration capacity in the case of arable land. On average, the suspended sediment loads were tenfold higher under intensive land use. In the case of grassland a moderate increase in infiltration was observed due to higher rainfall intensity, as also reported in the literature. The rainfall simulation method provides good data for soil loss estimations.
