Occupational field: Soil microbiology; Ecological and Anthropogenic Impact Studies, Unpolutant and Unconventional Technologies
- Coordination of scientific research in the framework of the partnership.

(1.) Eco-pedological and pedo-biological studies concerning the impact of the soil pluvial erosion, saltness, acidification, compaction, excess or deficiency of moisture on the soil fertility and quality indicators in the agroecosistems from hilly areas.
(2.) The impact study of technological measures on biological activity in the pluvial eroded soils.
- The establishment of technological solutions for the turning to good account of lands affected by pluvial erosion, saltness, acidification, compaction, excess or deficiency of moisture in the agroecosistems from hilly areas.
- The establishing of sustainable technology for mitigation, conservation and turning of soils on
agricultural land affected by various forms of degradation and deficiency of moisture.
(3.) Establishing of risk-generating sources and how to intercept the flow of cultivation technology
(4.) Analysis of soil risk factors (water, plant and fresh product)
(6.) Testing of an assortment of new fertilizers for homologation. In this way, we pointed out the effect of some Romanian and import solide and liquide fertilizers, applicable to soil and plants, on the productivity and quality of vegetable, fruit trees and vine culture, from quantitative and qualitative point of view. Thus, we aimed the effect of these unconventional and unpolutant substances on energetically and photosynthetic efficiency, plant metabolism and some productivity indicators (fruit weight, plant size etc.). After research we founded a significant production increases by fertilization with low and unpolutant doses, like alternative fertilization under sustainable agriculture.
(7.) Developing of necessary documentation for homologation, in Romania, of Italian products, used as ecological fertilizers in agriculture, and also, with secondary role of plant protection.
(8.) Developing of Sustainable Management Plan. We considered a major set of technological measures, scientific and investment to harmonize and optimize the imbalance between what can provide the soil and what is achieved in practice, in order to sustainable management of best use of soil resources and bringing profit. This strategic plan pointed out the main ecological negative or stressed ecological factors and determinants, together with the main negative effects for the intervention in scientific, technological, administrative - economic and managerial way.
- study and analisys of abiotic determinant factors with major role in maintenance and conservation of biodiversity;
- the influence of ecological impact on structure and functionality of natural and anthopogenic biocenosis;
- quantitative and qualitative assessment of zonal and local ecological specific: the main negative ecological factors and their effects on structure and functionality of natural and anthopogenic biocenosis;
- the analisys and assessment of effective trophicity of soil resources;
- the impact of agricultural technologies on soil biological activity.
