|Students will gain knowledge of pedogenesis, soil regimes and processes, classification and systematics of soils, agricultural soil valuation, land-valued soil-ecological units, the evaluation of land and pedological soil survey. They will understand the principles of the transport solution processes in soil and get practical experience in determining the physical and hydrophysical soil characteristics, balancing the amount of water in the soil in terms of water use by plants.|
|Pedogenesis. Classification and taxology of soils. Soil types in Slovakia. Soil fertility.
Soil as polydisperse system. Physical, hydrophysical, chemical and biological properties of soils.
Hydrostatics and hydrodynamics of soil water.
Mathematical modeling of soil water regime.
Classification of soil water regime.
