The use of the soil as resource is increasingly in the public interest . Sustainable management of agricultural soils is the basis of the crop production. Tillage systems with mulch as erosion and evaporation protection lead to improve soil life and reduce the working intensity. Sugar beet as a row crop with slow juvenile development is a crop in which relevante measures are especially effective to reduce erosion. In 2010, five different tillage systems were comparatively evaluated for their influence on plant development: "Conventional-" "Reduced-", "Minimal-", "Integrated-Tillage" and "no-tillage". The data of the work were determined in a since 1996 running long-term experiment at the Experimental Farm of the University of Agricultural Sciences in Großenzersdorf . For evaluation were selected soil ratios , yield results and quality criteria. The resistance to penetration was particularly dependent on the soil water content . The difference at moist conditions in topsoil were only slightly. At drier conditions, there was a more manifest differentiation at higher penetration resistances . The highest beet and leaf yields were reached on all harvest dates of the "reduced tillage variant" . As of the second harvest, and at main harvest were except the "Reduced tillage variant" at all soil tillage variants decreasing alpha-N content values at increasing sugar content values noticed. The highest sugar yield with 13.9 t/ha (pol.) reached the variant "Reduced tillage" . Due to the fluctuating weather influence on the effects of different tillage systems it is required to integrate the results from previous years for a comprehensive evaluation of the results from the experiment in 2010.
