The paper aimed to present the micronutrients content of some soils from the West Region of Romania, in the north part of Semlac Plain. Micronutrients soil content is not usually analysed, sometimes being excluded by farmers in fertilisation process, by financial reasons. The soil types who were studied included in Luvisols class. Luvic phaeozems and Vertic luvisols are formed on clays and Stagnic luvisols is formed on loams. Soil was sampled up to 20 cm depth, on ploughed soil layer. It was analysed soil pH which is directly related to micronutrients (Cu, Mn, and Zn) availability for crops. Defining to this soil class is the acid reaction, fact identified after the analyses that we made. Soil copper content is inferior to that which is specific for Luvisols class, fact due to soil native clay content. This fact may cause disorders in crop nutrition and copper deficiency. Manganese and zinc soil amount is sufficient for crops demands. For the local farmers in the research area is important to be informed regarding the soil status in micronutrients, which are important to obtain quality yields. The soil method analyses were made according to national and international standards. The obtained results were compared with the other researches on this domain.
