Modifications in soil cultivation affect the quality and quantity of the yield of sugar beets. The crop density, yield and the external quality of sugar beet roots are highly dependent on the preparation of soil. The intensity and precision of fragmentation of the superficial soil layer and the adequate depth of plantation must enable normal development of sugar beets. The aim of the study was to determine the dependence between the depth of soil cultivation in the strip-tillage system used for sugar beet production and the state of the plantation after the emergence of crops as well as the yield quality and quantity. The research encompassed investigations of different depths of strip-tillage systems used for sugar beet production. The systems were evaluated according to the dynamics of crops’ emergence, density, yield and external quality of sugar beet roots.
