   The research results of monitoring for arable and fallow gray soils of northern Moldova were presented. Their use as arable land led to moderate degradation of physico-chemical properties, manifested by de- humification, destructuration, compaction and loss of nutrients. Further exploitation of arable gray soils in agriculture, in conditions of fertilizer deficit and without protection measures will lead to worsening of their quality.

Keywords: arable, degradation, fellow, gray soil, monitoring, physico-chemical properties.
