Currently it is considered that food security is highly depending on the sustainable use of arable land that may be dramatically affected by drought and/or precipitations in the next 20 years. The Romanian agricultural economy is based on animal bred, crops cultivation as well as commodity trade. Fodder plants become more important when drought and acidification become limiting factors negatively impacting our own ability to bred livestock. A complex research project was implemented starting with 2007 when six fodder species (i.e. Festuca arundinacea, Festuca pratenssis, Phleum pratense, Dactylis glomerata, Lolium perenne and Trifolium repens) have been tested with the scope of producing new genotypes that may develop adaptation mechanisms towards drought and acidification. Thus, the scope of this article is to emphasize the main limitations that have been encountered during project implementation. A SWOT analysis was applied for evaluating final results. Major limitations are imposed by techniques, skills and studied plant species as well as by the need of data corroboration at the international level.
