ABSTRACT
The subject of the present research has been to study the influence of herbicidal fallow and mulching in the tree-rows on some of the soil properties and yields of apples var. Elstar. In the experiment the following combinations of soil treatments were applied: herbicidal fallow, pine bark, black foil and non-woven polyethylene. The applied combinations of treatments affected changes in the physico-chemical and chemical soil properties. These properties varied in the quantity and quality of organic material and intensity of nutrient leaching. The results obtained showed that mulching was a simple treatment that improved yields. In growing var. Elstar apples, mulching with pine bark yielded positive production effects.
