A sugar beet growing company like Albert Agro EV in Bácsbokod, Hungary, where the amount of sugar gained from the harvested sugar beet on 10-year average is more than 12 tons,
it is quite difficult to find any new methods to further increase yields without irrigation, besides intensive cultivation technology and continuously improving soil conditions applied.
Now, the seven years tillage without plow, along with a mulch unconventional technology, resulted in a 80-90 cm deep loosened, good structural and fractional soil for crops grown. As a result of cultivation method and of fertilization adjusted to harvest and yields, the humus content increased by 0.25 % in the last five years, which contributed to a significant decrease of fuel use per ha as well as to the decrease in the wear of devices.
