    Technology of soil cultivation significantly influences the economy of crop production and growing plants in Czech Republic. This article deals with evaluation of two main technological processes of soil cultivation, conventional and minimization procedure for the growing of winter wheat, winter oilseed rape, spring barley and sugar beet. Monitoring the yields in 500 selected plots with different soil conditions, time series from 2002 to 2009, including material costs and frequency of chemical plant protection allows quantification of the economic benefits of soil management options in specific soil and climatic conditions. The economic effect is given by the difference of crop production value and the cost of soil cultivation and chemical protection. Based on the evaluation of results can be recommended suitable areas for conventional or minimization technology as well as the areas where both effects are similar. For conventional technology are suitable especially light soils. The statistical assessment shows the link with the optimal choice of procedural technology according to some physical and biological characteristics of soil.
