The Typical Crernozem Soils of the Balti Steppe
The Typical Crernozem Soils of the Balti Steppe is part of the Tentative list of Moldova in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.
The Typical Chernozem Soils of the Balti Steppe are closely associated with the foundation of soil science by Vasily Dokuchaev in the late 19th century, and have been used for studies determining the interaction between intensive agricultural practices and the environment. Chernozem is the best arable soil in the world, and has supported the breadbasket of Europe and North America. Five long term experiments have been conducted on the chernozem soils of the Balti Steppe in order to identify best practices for sustainable agriculture and promote global food security.
