ICPALogo Small 

Profile National Research and Development Institute for Soil Science, Agro-chemistry and Environment – ICPA Bucharest, Romania, is the leading national research organization for soil science and the environmental protection in agriculture. During the last years, ICPA developed GIS databases at national scale for soils, terrain and land use together with simulation models linked with these databases predicting crop yield under various management practices. Also ICPA contributed to the implementation of various agro-environment regulations and directives, such as: designation of nitrates vulnerable zones and action programs for Nitrates Directive, designation of areas less favored for agriculture, developing methodologies for applying sewage sludge directive, evaluation of the national potential for biofuels and biocarburants. ICPA was partner in several European research projects related to soil monitoring under the framework of Soil Thematic Strategy and risk assessment for soil threats.
