ABSTRACT

To date, in connection with active development of all branches of industry, transport, agriculture the most urgent issue of identifying the characteristics of the behavior of chemical elements in soils and parent rocks within local areas with characteristic patterns. The object of this study is to Rostov region. Soil cover of the territory is formed mainly by two genetic soil types – chernozems and chestnut soils.
Since 2005 was conducted areal soil geochemical sampling areas, which yielded data on the content of nickel in soil. It served as the basis for building a map of the distribution of the element in the upper soil layers. The connection between nickel concentration in the soils and composition of soil-forming rocks is established. Distribution of an element on soil profiles is studied. Migratory activity of metal in different genetic types of soils and in different types of agrolandscapes is calculated. The effect of agricultural activity on the content and behavior of the element in the soils under investigation is studied.

Keywords: nickel, soil cover, agricultural practice, soil profile, agrolandscepes
