The successful application by farmers of minimum tillage (plowing followed immediately with a leveling and firming tool and planting within 24 hours) to sugar beets has reduced the weed problem, reduced production costs and produced satisfactory yields. Tests were initiated in 1958 to combine the operations of plowing and planting sugar beets and thus minimize the labor requirement.
