This article discusses a study of the influence of the soil usage and soil tillage system on soil properties. The study's authors examined the changes of arable soil properties by a five years application of four working systems of soil. They suggested that the application of minimum tillage systems determine an increasing of the humus content and an increasing of the hydro stabile aggregates content.
