Environment, including different types of soils, is permanently influenced by human activity, natural and technogenic disasters, etc. These influences weaken stability of ecosystems, landscapes, soils, especially in the case when these influences exceed the value of the maximum permissible standard. Every natural effect causes weakening of soil stability. That’s why it is important to know the values of the lads, which cause failure of proper functioning of soils. At present averaged values of observation data are considered as maximum permissible norms of different loads on soils. In the meantime, actual indices of soil loads are stipulated by many variable factors. Existing standards of permissible loads on soil don’t meet requirements, which provide proper functioning. Additional demands, related through time to operating conditions and probabilistic-statistical characterizing of factors causing processes of soil degradation in time, must be raised upon actual standards. Absence of scientifically substantiated permissible load norms is a reason of soil erosion that as the final result leads to land depopulation and loss of ethno-cultural traditions. That’s why in the given work take into account factors, which cause regulatory values of parameters of soil loads. Time of possible loss, fertility to the marginal degradation was calculated for all main types of Georgia’s soils.
