This paper analyzes the natural and anthropogenized soils on silicate substrates in the western part of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The aim of the research is to evaluate the impact of anthropogenization on these soils, using a method of comparing physical and chemical properties. The research was conducted in four locations in Bosanska Krajina by examining the following soil subgroups of Dystric Cambisol: Acidic brown soil on micaschist at site Šabići; Acidic brown soil on schist (Dystric Cambisol) at site Donja Lučka; Acidic brown soil on shales, site Jusufovići; Acidic brown soil on sandstone, site Baštra. In each of these sites, two profiles were opened; one on natural soil and others on anthropogenic - arable land, while the samples were taken in the profile on the horizon. We analyzed the following indicators of soil quality: soil organic matter content, pH, content of available forms of P2O5 and K2O, analysis of soil adsorption complex by Kappen method. The aim of the research is to determine differences in some soil properties between anthropogenic and corresponding soils under natural forest or meadow. By comparing the sample results of the analysis from the horizons of natural and cultivated soils, it was concluded that the proper application of agro-technical measures and agro-ameliorative measurements generally did not cause negative effects on the properties of these soils, and often showed a positive impact.
