In our study, by investigating reambulated soil profiles from the Nagy-Sárrét region in Hungary, we attempt to determine the extent of changes which have occurred due to effects which impacted the landscape in terms of the soil chemistry properties of soil profiles exposed during the Kreybig soil survey more than 70 years ago. Based on the results, in the areas used as grassland, we observed a decrease in pH and an increase in the humus content of the topsoil. The increased CaCO3 following the chemical improvement of the soil which was used as cropland is still characteristic of the area. During the past decades, the investigated soils have been affected by significant changes with regard to water management, which have also modified the investigated parameters. We have classified the reambulated soil profiles among the Solonetz, Vertisol, and Gleysol reference groups based on the World Reference Base of Soil Resources (WRB) diagnostic system.

In our study, we tested the existing and freely accessible soil databases covering a smaller geographical region surveyed and classified according to the Hungarian classification in order to approximate the WRB soil reference groups (RSG). We tested the results and applicability of approximation for the RSG with three different methods on 12 soil profiles. First, RSGs were assigned to Hungarian soil taxa based on results of previous correlation studies, secondly, a freely accessible online database of ISRIC was applied furthermore, and an automated reclassification developed and programmed by us was used, which takes the original soil data as input.
Thorough information about the reclamation status of soils based on complex studies carried out in the Mugan-Salyan massif are given in the article. Based on results of recent studies on the evaluation of reclamation status, soils were divided into 4-categories and the reasons behind each division and contemporary status were shown. Soils over Mugan-Salyan massif were evaluated with respect to all parameters and results were set up in a table. The evaluation allowed to prepare suggestions for farm owner on how to increase soil fertility.
