After the excavation of the canals of the main canal network (MCN) of the Danube-Tisza-Danube (DTD) hydro system, specific technological schemes were used to form deposited materials. In 1958 an experiment with forest plantings was set up on the deposols of the Odžaci-Sombor Canal. Its purpose was the protection and reclamation of the newly-formed dikes. The main aim of this paper is to point to the speed of the process of reclamation and changes in soil properties in the course of a 54-year-long experiment, on the basis of a years-long study of the experimental area.
