The model presents synthesized criteria for assessing the information value of the diagnostic features - depth of sampling, soil humidity, soil temperature and lead content in terms of the total microflora content at depths of 0-15 cm and 15-40 cm are two classes of state, the minimum allowable set of controllable signs is defined, which at the same time provides the best separation of states.
