Specific factors of soil formation in the Pre-Carpathians drive a prevalence of iron and aluminium phosphate fractions and a low incidence of calcium phosphate. Given that present soil phosphate status is not satisfactory for agriculture, optimization can be achieved only through fundamental change of regime. Changes in the space profile of phosphate fractions in brown podzolic gleys (Albeluvisols) are examined under different drainage conditions and after application of lime and phosphate. It is confirmed that tile drainage not only improves soil aeration but also significantly influences the fractional composition of phosphates.
