Rojiște commune is located in the south of Dolj county, an area strongly affected by desertification.
The plot of land provided by Rojiște City Hall was declared degraded land following a pedological study conducted by OSPA Dolj, which shows that this land is poorly productive for agricultural crops and recommends improvement through afforestation.
For the stabilization of the sandy soil, as well as for its rehabilitation by humus enrichment, but also for the improvement of the arid microclimate, the planting of forest vegetation represents the best solution to stop the advancement of the desertification phenomenon.
