Abstract: The analysis of spatial cross-variability is important for understanding soil variation at the field scale. Topography influences soil textural, soil physical and soil chemical properties. The objective of this study was to investigate spatial relations between soil water, soil mineral nitrogen, soil potassium and soil phosphorus versus relief parameters. Significant correlations were found between relief and soil mineral nitrogen, potassium and soil (surface) water content. The significance and crosscorrelation length differed between years. The relief parameter elevation showed the most significant crosscorrelations with soil properties.
